BOOK REVIEW

SPARKY’S BARK/EL LADRIDO DE SPARKY by Mimi Chapra
ANIMALS
Released: July 1, 2006

"Sweet, languid and full of family warmth, this is perhaps better suited to one-on-one parent-child readings than group read-alouds and should prove especially useful where immigration and separated families are part of the local fabric. (Picture book. 5-7)"
Something of the tenderness of 1960s and '70s picture books suffuses this bilingual tale of a young girl's trip with her mother from tropical Latin America to Ohio to visit relatives. Read full book review >

MY SCHOOL/MI ESCUELA by Ginger Foglesong Guy
CHILDREN'S
Released: July 1, 2006

"Perfect for short attention spans and for encouraging the beginnings of bilingualism. (Picture book. 1-5)"

HOW CAN YOU DANCE? by Rick Walton
CHILDREN'S
Released: June 1, 2001

"Preschool and primary-grade teachers will find this book useful for creative movement (P.E. teachers deserve books, too), and children's librarians will find it just the ticket to get out those wiggles during storytime. (Picture book. 4-8)"
You don't need to be enrolled in ballet or tap classes to dance; with Walton's (That's My Dog, see below, etc.) encouraging book, anyone can dance like a fox or a cloud or the king of the kangaroos. Read full book review >
