Synopsis: For his birthday, Pedro gets a perro and a sombrero. The dog is very fancy but the hat is too plain. So Pedro fixs it up with an avion (airplane), a bandera (flag), a cacto (cactus) and so on through an entire alphabet of unusual objects. Bold colorful art and a rhythmic text allow children to find the easily recognizable items as they learn simple words in Spanish.
From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3-Reed's book provides a fun adventure to help kids learn the Spanish language alphabet. Pedro receives a perro (a dog) and a sombrero (a hat) for his birthday. He likes the perro, but the sombrero is plain, so he decides to fix it up. The text flows in a light, cheerful manner from page to page as the boy decorates it with items ranging from a toy avion (a plane) to a zorillo (a skunk). The oil-pastel illustrations are bright and done in a primitive-looking, Southwestern style. Although the book is great fun, it should be noted that W and RR are left out entirely since they are rarely-if ever-used at the beginning of a Spanish word. Foreign words are used for K and X. These discrepancies are explained in an endnote about the language. A pronunciation guide is provided. Alma Flor Ada's Abecedario de los animales (Espasa Calpe, 1990) is another exceptional offering; however, it is completely in Spanish. Reed's title is well done and is a welcome addition.
