Review by Booklist Reviews

In the bilingual My Family / Mi familia series, this family story combines lively double-page illustrations with simple sentences in English on the left page and Spanish on the right. A young girl tells how she, her younger brother and sister, Grandma, Dad, and Mom come together for dinner when Mom calls them to the table. The line-and-watercolor pictures show what they eat (beans, chilis, warm tortillas, salad) and explain how happy they are (We're rich / Somos ricos), all together. This will be popular with children speaking and learning both Spanish and English. Copyright 2008 Booklist Reviews.

Review by School Library Journal Reviews

K-Gr 2— When Mom asks who is hungry, each family member, including the dog, enters the kitchen. The meal consists of beans, cheese, chile, tortillas, and a salad, and each dish is shown by itself on a white background. Everyone gathers around the table and expresses gratitude for such abundance. The colorful, average-quality illustrations depict the warmth and contentment of this family, and the simple text gives readers an opportunity to begin learning the basics of both languages.—Donna Atmur, Los Angeles Public Library [Page 117].
