Booklist - 02/01/2019 Excellent for English and Spanish language learners alike, this bilingual book for young readers combines language acquisition and cultural themes, telling a simple story while giving readers a real feast for the eyes in its richly detailed, full-color cartoon scenes depicting the animal denizens of El Mercado. Little Lobo’s day at the market involves running around everywhere delivering packages. While he’s at it, readers can wander around the pages full of background action in the Richard Scarry–like scenes, filled with busy merchants and labyrinthine layouts, “a maze of pathways, shops, and booths.” Everything is inconspicuously labeled with Spanish terms, the dialogue is often translated for non-Spanish speakers, and the scenery references many aspects of Mexican culture, such as sugar skulls, Cantinflas and other icons, cultural dress, cuisine, folk music and dancing, Lucha libre, and much more. A helpful glossary at the end fills any gaps. This lively, inviting picture book offers readers a playful glimpse into a desert world surrounded by mountains and cactuses. - Copyright 2019 Booklist.
