Construction vehicles in English and Spanish? Sounds like a fiesta to me!
*Extremely large pictures of fuel-guzzling yellow machines in action
*Each page features English on the top and Spanish on the bottom, which will help older kids improve their comprehension of the language they are less familiar with
*Conveniently points out the parts being discussed using arrow boxes over the pix
*You will hate that you ever learned to read after finishing this one
*The glosario in back is strangely organized (even though I guess its in alphabetical order) and a total skip over for parents and kids alike
*There's something depressing about so much dirt being showcased in every image you see
ONE DAD'S OPINION
I was noticing the other day that I haven't yet given a negative review to a bilingual book. Consider those days over. It's almost unbelievable how many times the same word is used to start both sentences on pages with only two periods (per language). Maybe Linda Williams thought children respond to that type of cadence. Well, I don't. No me gusta su libro Linda, no me gusta. So even though my son loves looking at the backhoes, this book won't be seeing the light of day for some time. We'll find him some other outlet for his construction addiction.
