Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Six tunes "steeped in the tradition of classic children's songs of the United States" are thoughtfully translated into Spanish by children's musician Orozco. The translations sit side by side on the page, making it easy for readers learning the song in either language to cross-reference while building their vocabulary. Orozco adds his voice in an author's note about the importance of both multilingualism and music to child development. Pura Belpré Honoree Palacios's cheery, scribble-textured illustrations follow two joyful brown-skinned children as they move through inclusive communities in a day peppered with the selected songs: in the classroom ("The ABC"/ "El ABC"), on their commute ("The Wheels on the Bus"/ "Las Ruedas Del Camión"), and at home on a farm ("Old McDonald"/ "Juancho Pancho"). A small but mighty assortment of childhood's greatest hits, and a welcome resource for any bilingual bookshelf. Ages 4–8. (Feb.) Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly.

Review by School Library Journal Reviews

Toddler-PreS–A delightful book that explores six classic songs in Spanish and English. Included are "Old MacDonald Had a Farm," "The Alphabet Song," "Where Is Thumbkin," "The Wheels on the Bus," "The Eeensy Weensy Spider," and "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star." Spanish translations are well done, although the lyrics to "Juan Pancho" ("Old MacDonald") are a bit complicated. With a little practice, patrons will be singing along smoothly. The mixed-media illustrations in subtle tones portray happy children excitedly singing these familiar childhood songs. Children of different races and backgrounds appear on every page. VERDICT This beautifully done book is sure to be a hit with toddlers and preschoolers.—Martha Rico, Yselta ISD, TX Copyright 2020 School Library Journal.
