KIRKUS REVIEW

Caldecott-winner Diaz’s warm, detailed and woodcut-inspired illustrations complement and expand upon Orozco’s rhythmic and rhyming texts, a longer one in Spanish, a shorter and more basic one in English. Words and pictures work together to show a young boy rising in the morning, playing with his letter blocks, going to the market—all the while counting, noticing words, enjoying stories and interacting with family members. The simple rhymes employ nonsense syllables in the Spanish version to create a nursery-rhyme sense that’s not apparent in the English. A more literal translation and a musical setting follow the illustrated text. (Picture book/poetry. 3-6)
