Booklist - 08/01/2019 Like their Siesta (2005) and ¡Fiesta! (2007), Guy and Moreno's bilingual picture book teaches basic Spanish terms using familiar concepts. Over the course of 12 months, diverse children and their families (plus a menagerie of animals) blissfully coexist in the splendor of each season. In Enero. Frebrero. Marzo, children play in the snow while llamas and doggies enjoy the outdoors. After all the seasons conclude, the start of a new year arrives, helping learners grasp transitions and new beginnings. A repetitive structure (transitions are always prefaced by Entonces . . . / And then . . . ) and English translations appearing beneath Spanish words will help readers make sense of the concepts and language, and the soft, color-pencil illustrations emphasize the words with visual cues. An inviting primer on Spanish and seasons. - Copyright 2019 Booklist.
