Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr K-4—What's in the pot that the farm maiden stirs? Well, into that cazuela goes lime, rice, sugar, milk, eggs, and butter, all brought by different animals. Each is introduced in English, but subsequent appearances use their Spanish names. The list of ingredients and participants grows with each page, offering listeners a chance to pick up the vocabulary through repetition, while enjoying the delightful illustrations by Rafael Lopez. The book (Charlesbridge, 2011) receives stellar treatment here. Narrator Adriana Sananes provides an authentic Spanish accent for the Spanish words, and clear English for the rest of the text. This is a delightful bilingual romp, and teachers will appreciate the chance to compare and contrast the story with the English "This is the House That Jack Built." There's even a recipe for Arroz Con Leche (rice pudding) at the end of the book, as well as a glossary of the Spanish words. This is both a visual and an auditory treat that is sure to stir up a lot of enthusiasm from any audience.—Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary, Federal Way, Washington. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

*Starred Review* With the help of her animal friends, a farm maiden begins to cook. The goat lends some butter; the cow, fresh milk; the chicken, a few eggs all for a pot of rice pudding. Inspired by "The House that Jack Built," Vamos offers a fresh, new twist, playfully introducing Spanish into this cumulative tale. The pot becomes the cazuela; the goat, the cabra; the butter, the mantequilla; and so forth, until the text is bursting with bilingual energy. With each repetition, the momentum builds and bubbles until it reaches a boiling frenzy. Vamos then skillfully ties it all together, as each animal s Spanish name and accompanying ingredient is reiterated in a simple phrase allowing readers to recall their meaning and relationship to the rice pudding. A party ensues, and all return to the cazuela to give thanks and share in their communal creation. López s artwork, with its desert palette punctuated by brilliant primary colors and its graphic, hard edges, suggestive of folk art, is a perfect match. His sophisticated, multilayered textures create depth, give form and work together to create an image that s easily readable, humorous and harmonious. Complete with an arroz con leche recipe and glossary of Spanish words, this thoughtful work will appeal to both Spanish speakers and learners. A wonderful read-aloud, filled with merriment and conviviality. --Kirkus Reviews --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
