KIRKUS REVIEW

Against white backgrounds, objects of the same color are grouped, spread by spread. Red/rojo features las fresas (strawberries), los corazones (hearts, in this case the Valentine’s Day variety) and las mariquitas (ladybugs), as well as a couple of items that are not sui generis red, el auto (car) and los guantes (gloves, or, as pictured here but not glossed as such, mittens). Los guantes are also fuzzy; each spread includes one tactile element, including a shiny, ridged fish (el pez), roughly sparkly stars (las estrellas) and the smooth belly of a frog (la rana). The busy-ness of the layout steers this title to a slightly older audience than the author’s elegantly simple My Colors/Mis Colores (2000), but it has the virtue of a larger vocabulary. Buy as an adjunct to, not a replacement for, the earlier title. (Ages 1-3)
