Baby-Toddler–This lively, interactive Spanish-language board book is a celebration of baby feet. Colorful illustrations show a baby’s footprints set against a variety of backdrops, such as the sun, flowers, fish, and vivid skies. The small feet step on the grass, flutter like butterfly wings, and jump as the baby plays. They look giant next to ants or small next to a caregiver’s hand. Puerto Rican author-illustrator Álvarez Astacio’s charming art will inspire babies playing silly games with their 10 little toes. The variety and styles of feet shown highlight that just as all babies are unique, so are their small feet. Soothing, lyrical Spanish text accompanies the illustrations; it can easily be used as a lullaby. The last spread assures babies that their feet will take them far.
VERDICT An excellent and one-of-a-kind addition to Spanish board book collections.
