Wonderful poetics, not-so-wonderful illustrations,
This review is from: Hola! Jalapeno (World Snacks) (Spanish and English Edition) (Board book)
When I heard about this book, I had to have it. A book about Mexican food for kids...how great (especially for where we live). And it is a great book. My daughters love the descriptions of Mexican food & I love the mixture of Spanish & English. These are words used frequently in our house & words I know my children will need to know. Even for those who don't have a firm grasp on the correct Spanish pronunciation for all the Mexican delights, never fear -- there is a glossary on the back cover with pronunciation guides. The artwork, however, leaves a lot of be desired. It's beautiful for adults, but my daughters really aren't interested in it. They like to hear the words, but will turn away from the pictures (unlike with other books where they are constantly pointing at the illustrations & taking great notice in the details).
