Reviews for How Do You Say / Como Se Dice (Spanish/English)

"Praise for How Do You Say? / ¿Cómo se dice?: ""Young children will delight in the antics of two endearing giraffes in this bilingual picture book."" --School Library Journal ""This charming story is as light as air yet carries heft."" --Kirkus Reviews ""As appealing to look at as it is to listen to, this book... provides opportunities to bring together those learning English, learning Spanish, or just learning how to make new friends and amigos."" --The Horn Book ""Dominguez's bold, playful pictures keep the focus squarely on the giraffes' one-on-one interactions as she demonstrates something that many children know intuitively: speaking different languages is a minor detail when it comes to making new friends."" --Publishers Weekly Praise for Maria Had a Little Llama / María tenía una llamita: ""A fresh and enjoyable reimagining of a traditional children's rhyme."" --Kirkus Reviews ""A solid addition to a bilingual storytime program."" --The Bulletin"
