Unlike a lot of other books that are translated into Spanish, this one doesn't lose much of the rhythm or the fun when translated. It also has the English text along with the Spanish text. My 1 1/2 year old son really enjoys this book, along with the tape recording of his Tio Raul reading it. I highly recommend it!

A wonderful book for begginers at a really cheap price. The pictues show the text really well and just in case there are some misunderstandings about the meaning of the spanish sentenes, the english version is witten right below it. I am teaching my 2-year old spanish along with improving mine, and this book is really helpful. HIghly recommended to all ages.

This book does an excellent job of exploring the concepts of size, color and opposites using a storyline about two dogs who are very different, but also the best of friends. English text is displayed under the Spanish, making it an excellent choice for a bilingual classroom in the primary grades. ( or for English as a second language learners.)

I bought this book for my son, and think i'll have to get another pretty soon, he can't let go, either i have to read it to him every night or he has to read it to me, It's getting pretty worn out.
Some times we alternate, I read in spanish he reads in english.
So if your looking for a billingual book for your children look no further

I think one of the many bonuses of the bilingual version of this book is that the text is simple and does not overpower the page. This is a great book for a great price.

I like this book, because when I read it aloud to my Spanish classes, I know the students sitting closest to me are most likely following the English with their eyes, and learning new vocabulary words because of it.

The pictures are vibrant, and for a translated text, the story flows well. Great way to introduce adjectives to students of various ages, or to build on another Spanish workbook curriculum.

I read this to my 4-year-old daughter only in Spanish the first few times and she LOVED it. The pictures and ideas convey the meaning of, (what is to her), a foreign language so well! As a barely-fluent speaker myself, the book introduced a few new fun vocabulary words. The context of the story very clearly depicted for her the meanings of the words "despacio" and "deprisa" which quickly turned into a game of running around the house in each of the two manners. Once she realized that the little words underneath were in English, she refused to hear the story in Spanish, but with patience on my part, that has changed slightly :0) The story is just plain really cute, too.

This book is rife with introductory vocabulary: up/down green/red long/short fast/slow which makes it great for preschoolers attempting Spanish as a second language. I like the way it USES opposites (and similarities) without just stating them as many introductory books do. The Spanish flows easily and the only odd/idiomatic dialogue in the book would have to be the "The bird's got the word" near the end. If you are not convinced this is a good bilingual book, try the look inside function, and hit "surprise me" a number of times!

This is a whimsical book that kids really 'get'. P.D. Eastman's illustrations are wonderful as always, and each page has subtle fun touches that you might not catch the first time; rereading the book is not a chore for adults. The side-by-side upbeat Spanish and English text makes a great primer.
