Not really a bilingual book, this only features the numbers in both languages, the rest of the words are just in English. However, it is still really cute and depicts some aspects of Mexican culture.

A book with typical Spanish style colorful pictures with lots of red, orange, and yellow, it's easy to see why kids are attracted to this book. Although there aren't enough words to even make it to a level 1 book, the thing I love about this one is the repetition. There's nothing like continual repetition when learning another language and for counting in Spanish, this is no exception. The kids had the basics down by the end of the book and that made this a good addition to the Kindergarten Basi ...more

This book would be good to share with young students who are bilingual. Connections are made throughout the story with English and Spanish words. For instance, uno is connected with one and so on. This book would be a great book to introduce to an ELL students of a Spanish speaking background in order to be introduced to simple words in the English language, such as number words. This is also a great book to share with ELL students because the words in the story rhyme. A Pre-K teacher with a Spa ...more

Use this book to reinforce counting in Spanish and English for all students. Story about 2 daughters collecting items for their mom's birthday. Allows for repetition of counting in both languages. Activity for class would be to pair up mono and bilingual students and allow them to practice counting in both languages. Have them use manipulatives to even practice adding and subtracting, this would reinforce their ability to use both languages in real situations.

I liked how simple this book was. They were just shopping for their mama's birthday and were counting in English and Spanish. Having kids do something like this would teach them how to count in Spanish and in English. This book is helpful for kids who do not know English and also, for kids who are trying to learn Spanish at a young age.

Not our favorite counting book. The illustrations were confusing for the kids - they didn't know what exactly they were supposed to be counting.

Uno, Dos, Tres; One, Two, Three by pat Mora is a counting book for children. What really caught my attention about this book is the fact that it is in Spanish and English. This book helps children learn to count from one to ten. On one side of the page it says the number in Spanish. On the other page the numbers are in English. I realized this is a high quality children’s books for several reasons.
One of the reasons I consider this book a high quality children’s book is because it is very easy

Recommended to Jennifer by: All For Kids
Objects to count may be difficult for readers to easily ascertain in this bilingual counting book set in a Mexican market and illustrated by well-known Barbara Lavelle.

CIP: Pictures depict two sisters going from shop to shop buying birthday presents for their mother. Rhyming text presents numbers from one to ten in English and Spanish.

The author, Pat Mora, is Mexican-American and presents an English/Spanish counting story around a universal experience of shopping for a birthday present for mama. Cultural artifacts such as religious wall hangings, costumes and dance are found in the illustrations. The setting, howeve, does not appear to be current but rather stereotypical.

4.5 stars. I think this is a great bilingual counting book for kids. I think the repetitive nature is helpful for the kids to practice their Spanish counting. There is also a helpful pronunciation glossary in the back.

A counting book in both Spanish and English. Two sisters are planning a party and we count all the different decorations and amusements they pick up while shopping.

Illustrations are of a very Mexican flare!

This is a great way to introduce Spanish culture. The illustrations are fun. I would use this in a classroom to teach how to count to ten in Spanish and also to introduce my students to a beautiful new culture.

The book is cute and a good way to introduce Spanish counting into class. Unfortunately, I do not feel like there is enough of a climax or build to keep the attention of students for very long.
