Is It Any Good?

The engaging comics art and fun-to-read story will have kids reading through speech bubbles and paying attention to details and labeled illustrations. Author Raúl the Third, a Pura Belpré Medal-winning illustrator, beautifully draws young readers into a busy world and exposes them to Spanish vocabulary seamlessly. The featured objects in ¡Vamos! Let's Go to the Market! -- food carts, dulcerias, títeres, piñatas, juguetes, lucha libre -- are Latinx in origin but have universal appeal, making this a great book for families to read together. There's so much to talk about! There may even be new illustrations and details to discover on repeated readings, so kids will want to read this book over and over.

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.
