“Beautiful illustrations with vibrant colors … make the characters pop. Parents will love these books for teaching a second language to their child when their little brains are like sponges, taking in everything like the little geniuses they are.” —Sue Morris, Kid Lit Reviews

“A good start for learning the ABCs in Spanish or English.” —Kirkus Reviews

“These beautiful bilingual board books have been a hit with our youngest reader! They are also a top choice for my husband to grab since he is fluent in Spanish and enjoys the chance to share the language with her. My older kids love joining in and learning some new words too. These books are illustrated with the characters from the Emmy nominated @canticosworld bilingual musical preschool series on @nickjr but can be fully enjoyed whether you’re familiar with the show or not. We read the books first. They are beautifully designed and sturdily built with both English and Spanish words throughout. Some of the titles are available in both small lift the flap book form or larger accordion style. Our favorite is the accordion style because the kids can surround themselves with the book.” —Stephanie Price, Because My Mother Read

STARRED REVIEW: "Returning fans of the beloved “Canticos” board books will enjoy these additions, and new readers will discover why this series is award-winning...Letters A to Z also finds the characters exploring different places where they take part in activities, such as playing with toys, eating ice cream, and even visiting space. Each spread is dedicated to a single letter, with the English word and its Spanish translation on the left, and another Spanish word and its English translation on the right. Letters are large in size and easy to spot, which will make this a wonderful choice for babies and toddlers. Young readers and their parents will thoroughly enjoy spotting all the fun activities taking place in these titles, and the colorful and lively illustrations and clear text are sure to make these joyful favorites. ­VERDICT: Highly recommended for all Spanish and bilingual board book ­collections for children." —Selenia Paz, Harris County P.L., Houston for School Library Journal

"This was such a wonderful and cute book!! I would recommend this for a first time reader or to have in your classroom library. The pictures are so nice!!" —Christine Rankins, Educator, NetGalley

"This book was adorable and I will definitely get my hands on a physical copy when I can! I liked the idea of switching back and forth between using English and Spanish as the first word for each letter." —Marie Sutton, Librarian, NetGalley

"I just love children’s books that have cute illustrations. And when those illustrations are combined with some educational or life lessons, it is the best of all worlds.

Letters A to Z has everything a parent would want in an alphabet picture book. Adorable illustrations (cuteness to the nth power,) grace each page and both capital and lower case letters are shown. What really sets this alphabet book apart from the others, however, is the addition of Spanish words for each alphabet.

Letters A to Z would make a wonderful and special addition to any toddler’s library. What better way to introduce the young ones to a different culture and language. Five noteworthy stars." —Claire Yamagata, NetGalley

"Definitely a cute little bilingual alphabet book. The bright colors and baby chicks characters are very enticing. I appreciated that the differences between the English and Spanish alphabet were addressed but that the differences in the sounds were also addressed. Have some phonics with your alphabet." —Stevie Thomas, Librarian, NetGalley
