"Elevando la Lectura Bilingüe" - Tania Navarro, El Observador "A playful and entertaining ride for the children's storybook genre--this book is inventive when it comes to exploring new points of view from original characters." - David Horrocks "This author's approach removes the fear out of learning a new language. He obviously has a gift with language and cleverly plays with words in both Spanish and English throughout the story. The pairing of Spanish and English side by side keeps the reader grounded ... very approachable mystery. ... The beauty of this book is that it opened my mind to learning in multiple ... ways through a simple yet stimulating layout." - Littledragonfly "[Las] obras ... [del] autor... promueven la literatura bilingüe". - Normand Garcia, AhoraUtah "I enjoyed reading this book and have used it in my classroom. I have read several books by the author and have enjoyed each ... The pictures are super ... the fact that it has both Spanish and English is helpful for my students ... Favor de seguir escribiendo libros tan bonitos como este". - C. Martin "Love the book, the author does a great job of teaching Spanish throughout the book. I would highly recommend it to anyone." - Jason A. "Un libro que mantiene el interes de los niños en cada página, con muy buenas ilustraciones que desarrollan la curiosided de los pequeños. El autor presenta este libro de una manera muy sencilla y entretenida." - Miguel A. This is an adorable mystery book for children of all ages. A delightful story and wonderfully illustrated. We are using it to expose our children to Spanish, but it would be excellent for students learning English as a second language. - Patti LeBaron, CA "We love this book at our house. Every night, our little one says, 'Crumbs?'" - J. Turner "I love it get this book! I read this to my nieces; it great! It's a good start to learning a few Spanish words and sentences." - Catherine "As an author of children's books, I read lots of books written for children. I know kids love rhyming words ... But, the book is more than a play with words. It is a mystery for the very young ... It has a satisfying twist at its end. ... My next door neighbor ... is teaching her children Spanish. I excitedly shared it with her, but she had already purchased the book for her children. No real surprise." - David Christensen "Fabuloso!!!! My daughter absolutely loves this book! First time I ever read to her she was 5 years old, she is 7 now and she still loves reading it, especially the words in Spanish. The book is so fun and colorful. I would totally recommend it to anyone." - Zumbanessa "The best in both languages." - reader "I love how this author creates bilingual stories. This is an innovative tool for teaching children in the home and at school. I love the engaging artwork and play on words." - Beth "What a cute children's book! Beckstrand is very clever with this little mystery of the crumbs. The language is playful and well chosen, and the illustrations are quite a feast for young eyes. I also like the dual languages. Great job." - Brett Rasmussen "Karl writes in a fun manner and, since this book is in both English and Spanish, you can help expand the child's horizons by giving a little Spanish teaching, while making it fun. This is a great way to re-inforce a child who is learning Spanish in school." - R. Canham

In this rhyming mystery, we read that there are crumbs all over, on the bear, the stairs, the squares, the tear in the chairs, the hair on cousin Claire, in fact everywhere. We read the mystery for the fun of it, and to find out who did it and why.
This author's approach removes the fear out of learning a new language. He obviously has a gift with language and cleverly plays with words in both Spanish and English throughout the story. The pairing of Spanish and English side by side keeps the reader grounded while also authentically experiencing the foreign language. (In my experience, at least half of the challenge of learning a new language is the feeling of bewilderment which is absent with this type of learning.) This very approachable mystery picture book draws you in and teaches you by stealth!
The beauty of this book is that it opened my mind to learning in multiple new ways through a simple yet stimulating layout. Keep 'em coming, Karl!
I liked the layout of the book and the pictures.
