This easy to follow picture book by Angela Dominguez does a great job illustrating the fact that some of us speak Spanish, while others speak English, and some of us even speak both languages. I'm Hungry! / ¡Tengo hambre! offers a simple storyline that's easy for kids to follow. Repetitive phrases help kids learn new words in both English and Spanish. Included is a delightful blend of humor, friendship, and language learning. Vibrant illustrations provide visual cues and playful text make it a fun and engaging read for bilingual families, and kids of all ages wanting to learn a new language. It's a feel-good picture book for all to enjoy!

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
