From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2–Amelia, an enthusiastic new student in her American school, is more than ready for her first show-and-tell. She dons her beautiful fiesta dress with the three fancy skirts that reminds her of her Cuban homeland. However, when she sees the show-and-tell basket on the teacher's desk full of small items that the other students have brought, she feels as though she's made a horrible mistake. How an understanding teacher and interested classmates help Amelia to tell about her dress makes for a satisfying if slightly predictable story. The Spanish translation errs a bit on the side of the literal, but is generally correct, if uninspired. The English text has a lilt and cadence enhanced by the use of Spanish phrases embedded in it. The bright acrylic illustrations are vibrant and appealing, displaying busy scenes full of things to pore over. Use this with Anne Rockwell's Show & Tell Day (HarperCollins, 1997) for a look at an American primary-grade tradition.
