Engaging text and whimsical illustrations make this a great book to enjoy while learning some Spanish. Author Susan Middleton Elya beautifully exposes young readers to simple Spanish vocabulary, beautifully woven into the rhyming lines of this book. Ana Aranda's bright and festive illustrations in Our Celebración! are eye-catching and inviting, ready to delight young readers. However, the text may be a bit much for beginning readers to handle on their own, especially if they are not bilingual and are encountering these Spanish words for the very first time. A Spanish language learner at the beginner level may be able to look at the pictures for clues and use them to easily decipher the new Spanish words.

This a great book for families to read together as an introduction to Spanish vocabulary or as a celebration of language and culture for native Spanish-speaking families.

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.
