Fun counting book with lots of Spanish words and a glossary in the back to help with pronunciation and definitions.

A beautiful intertwining of English and Spanish in this colourful counting book full of rhythm, with a handy glossary and pronunciation chart at the back. Thoroughly recommended!

Just as has been the case for this author's previous books, the text weave in English and Spanish in lively and engaging fashion. Readers follow the rhyming text as four lines celebrate various numbers, from one to ten. Created in paint, the illustrations complement the text quite well as they feature various characters embracing life in stylish fashion until they're all gathered together on the last pages. There's even a glossary in the back of the book that gives a pronunciation key for the Sp ...more

On each two page spread we find the numeral, the number in English, and the number in Spanish, as well as the text which points out several things to count. The things may be in English (example: marigolds) or Spanish (example: calveras). There's a Spanish glossary in the back, but it's probably not needed.

Speaks the way bilingual people frequently do -- slipping in a word from the other language where it seems appropriate.

Goes from 1 to 10.

Rhyming English text is enhanced by Spanish vocabulary in the counting book, One is a Pinata: a Book of Numbers by Roseanne Greenfield Thong. A glossary at the back gives definitions for unfamiliar words. Illustrations of everyday life in a pallate of blues, reds, browns and yellows by John Parra complement the text. For ages 3 - 7.

The numbers appear three ways on their corresponding pages: the numeral, the word in English, and the word in Spanish.

Most numbers get one spread; a few get two. There are multiple things to count on a page/in the text for each number.

Most of the bilingual text switched between languages in ways that made sense to me (mostly just using some nouns in Spanish). There's one part at the end that felt off to me, though (with the infinitive of a verb in Spanish); technically the grammar works in both
