Editorial Reviews

Review

“Spanish and English are bled seamlessly with the graceful narrative. Shaw-Smith's heroic-style pictures, filled with rich, glowing reds and yellows, are crammed with disparate details.” ―School Library Journal

“Mamita explains how bread is created and celebrates its goodness by singing a short and simple Spanish song.... The music for this original song, along with lyrics in both Spanish and English, is included at the end.” ―Booklist

Format: Paperback
A wonderfully illustrated, poetic exchange between mother and son tells the story of where bread comes from and how it feeds people around the world. The text moves fluidly between the story, in English, and the song, in Spanish.

I got this for my kids because I liked the integrated bilingual approach (instead of fully in one language or the other) and that they love bread. We are not native speakers, even though we speak some Spanish. My nearly 4 year old loves this one, and joins in with the singing and has picked up a few new Spanish words. I didn’t realize before I purchased it, but was pleased to discover a nice farm to table aspect about this as well. He especially likes to sing the nighttime one softly because it's dark. This makes it a perfect bedtime story.

From my perspective, I love the illustrations, and there is a multicultural aspect (beyond the Spanish language). This is a great book to add to the collection.

Format: Paperback
My husband is half Mexican, I spent time in Central America, we speak Spanish as a family and it is our children's first language, so you'd think this book would be right up our alley, but so many things in it are just strange. The theme is wheat and bread, which does not have the same importance in Latin America as it does in Northern European cultures. (A book about corn and tortillas would have made more sense). The mother is called Mamita, rather than Mamá or Mamacita. The scenery looks like Vermont with brown skinned people and a more Latin color palette: snow, red barns, picket fences, big combines. The Spanish phrases are strange: “el pan es bueno.” My husband couldn't bring himself to say that and said instead, “el pan es rico.” And lots of little things, like the boy wearing shorts and sneakers. (If it were hot enough for shorts in Latin America, he'd be in flip flops or bare feet. If he were wearing shoes, he would be dressed up wearing nice shoes).

I can see that a lot of people like it for the farm to table aspect, but if you're looking for a truly Spanish/English bilingual/bicultural book, rather than a white person's impressions of Latin culture, try one written by someone with a bilingual/bicultural heritage.
