This book was about a bit and his mother telling him to eat bread and going through the life cycle of bread. There is a song in Spanish throughout the book with the music to the song and the English translation at the end. This book is good for phonological awareness, and vocabulary. I'd recommend it for ages 1-5.
The ethnic feel of the illustrations is cool. And the little Spanish song is cool, but I wish that the meaning was made clear earlier. And it's a happy way to demonstrate the process wheat goes through to become bread. Still didn't love it though-- maybe because, other than the song, there isn't a lot of rhythm to the story. I'm a sucker for good rhythm and rhyme in a children's story.

ok - one of those repetition books that I just can't get excited about reading.

Mamita explains how bread is produced from seed to flour in a poem/song in both English and Spanish.
