KIRKUS REVIEW

 Another bright-eyed dose of Spanish vocabulary from Elya (Say Hola to Spanish, 1996). Jaunty, rhyming couplets introduce the words, and Lopez has provided illustrations in saturated, paintbox colors. Following the format of the first book, Elya makes an effort to give the platform for the 70+ words some continuity, but some strange bedfellows on the page undercut the lesson's effectiveness: ``Musicians are m£sicos. Flags are banderas. Please don't run when using tijeras.'' Some of the comments are obscure--``Too much [ice cream] makes you gordo instead of delgado''--and sometimes it is difficult to match the words to the images, but this is still a lot more fun than listening to language tapes. And if the words have verve, the art fairly dances off the page. (glossary) (Picture book. 7-9)
