Rebecca Emberley is the author of numerous picture books and Spanish/English titles that introduce children to a second language. She lives in Kittery, Maine with her husband and daughter.
PreSchool-Grade 2-Beginning with an informational paragraph on the history of the piñata, this introduction to a Hispanic tradition is presented in simple text and mixed-media collage. Following a spread showing a brightly colored piñata, the bulk of the book shows the various items being placed inside. Candy and gum, rubber balls, barrettes, ribbons, and rings-all these and much more will fall out once the shell is broken. And with a mighty "crack," that's just what happens. Two spreads at the end ask children to identify the objects and give illustrated instructions on making a balloon piñata. The English text is printed in yellow and the Spanish in black immediately under it. Both show up admirably on the bright red backgrounds, though the text is basically just labels for the art. The illustrations truly carry the story, and once the rhythm of the text is established, even the youngest listeners can "read" it. Similar to Emberley's My Numbers/Mis numeros or My Shapes/Mis formas (both Little, Brown, 2000), this title is adequate introductory fare.
