This is a sweet picture book perfect for new parents as a couple welcomes their first baby home and spend their first day together. Spanish words are sprinkled throughout the affirming text. Pair this one with Besos for Baby or Salsa Lullaby for more Latinx celebrations of baby love.

A Latinx family welcomes a new baby in this picture book where Spanish and English mix in the text. The new parents welcome the baby home. They gaze at the perfect little face, touch fingers and toes. The baby is fed after getting a bit fussy, then burped too. It’s eventually time for a siesta, achieved with a clever burrito fold of the blanket that leaves that cute little face showing. The book ends with bedtime and being kissed goodnight.

Perfect for new older siblings who are still toddlers th

I LOVE YOU, BABY BURRITO is a modern classic picture book celebrating the act of swaddling a newborn into a "baby burrito".

My daughter and I loved the cute illustrations! In addition, the loving dialogues with a touch of Spanish expressions made our reading so fun and heartwarming. Reading Spanish felt like "home" and left me nostalgic about my language. This picture book would be wonderful for every family, especially for families with Latinx heritage.

Finally, someone capitalized on the insanely adorable phrase "baby burrito" and made a truly charming picture book that is perfect for littles. Bold images and close-ups of cute baby parts make this a delight to read-aloud for baby storytimes, both in-person and virtual.

Now let's turn this into a board book!

Angela Dominguez has the cutest easy bilingual books. This one is obviously more about babies, so I'm not sure how it would fly in our storytimes that are geared more for preschoolers, but maybe if we did a "family" theme or something? It's very darling and seamlessly incorporates spanish words into the text. ...more

I received an electronic ARC from MacMillan Children's Publishing Group.
Dominguez captures the overwhelming love parents feel for their baby. The soft colored illustrations support the sense of well being and blessing felt in this home. Uses both English and Spanish words with a glossary at the end.

This is an adorable Spanish/English picture book that shows a mother and father talking lovingly to their new baby. The Spanish throughout the text is easy to understand in context, though a glossary is also available in the back. This would be good addition to baby storytime or one-on-one lapsits.
Annamarie Carlson (she, her)
Adorable story following a family bringing their new baby home. Includes Spanish words throughout, with a glossary on the back end papers. Encourages some body part identification that would be useful in a storytime setting.
