“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
"This is a super fun and encouraging bilingual (English/Spanish) lift-the-flap book. Kiki, a little chick, wants to learn to fly…With more thought, plans, and construction Kiki builds a small plane and is able to fly. Colorful, emotive illustrations really bring out the story. Each line of text in English is repeated in Spanish to offer an easy translation and the repetitive nature of certain parts will help the new language (whichever that may be) sink in." - Vicky Tandy, Athol Public Library
