I'm teaching my 2 year old niece Spanish and she enjoys this book. It's one of the better bilingual books I've found for her. And very useful because it actually teaches the concept of languages by showing Spanish and English in action, side by side, as an integral part of the story. Puts Spanish in context, especially for a kid who does not encounter Spanish on a day to day basis - beyond her big book collection, that is!

I teach second grade in NW Ohio, where there isn't much diversity. One of my friends in the school (other teacher) was born in Puerto Rico. We often read this to classes together, as we are much like the two girls in the book. The students are facinated at hearing the story in both English and Spanish. By the end of the story, they are usually able to pick out a few words in Spanish. The story line is very simplistic, but one children can relate to (going to the park and meeting a new friend). The book also provides much discussion about how to make friends even if you don't happen to speak the same language. I would say this book is a MUST for bilingual classrooms as well.

Good idea for a book, but a bit boring in my opinion! I was hoping there was a deeper story within the text!

This book was my daughters favorite book as a little girl. We read it over and over again. As a Cuban American, I always wanted for her to know that all cultures were Important specially her own. That was close to twenty years ago. When a friend asks in lue of cards to bring a book to her baby shower, I just knew this was the book to dedicate. Margaret n margarita will always be remembered with love as I recall those great days of reading to my little girl.

It's a great book! My 6y old loved it! Helps her to understand 2 languages. The only reason I give it 4 stars because I wish it could be longer!
