Eight animales, ready to play, head for the parque-the park-for the day. The trouble is, each animal friend wants to play something different. Cat-Gato-brings her bat and a rousing game of baseball-béisbol-seems like the best idea, but it doesn't take long for trouble to strike. When Horse pops out and gets grumpy and the chatter in the infield turns mean, the game goes sour. But then it starts to rain and bad feelings are forgotten as the friends work together to keep their gear and each other dry (except Frog-Rana-of course!). With easy Spanish vocabulary seamlessly intertwined with English, and vibrant, energetic illustrations, this offers fun for non-Spanish speakers as well as Spanish speakers learning English.

We read these to our son when he was young, and now I'm reading them to the gals I watch. The cadence, the words, the illustrations, and the characters are wonderful and fun. The sprinkling of Spanish words make it easy for anyone to read.
