Similar to Quiero a Mi Papa porque... I love this book. My only reason for four stars instead of five is that this one features more domesticated animals (cat, sheep, hen, pigs) whereas the other has all wild animals. I do still love that it's bilingual and tells what the animals are, plus that it still appreciates moms for being "big and strong" and it shows more than just one race of human mothers.
I'm an English speaker, but I bought the English/Spanish version because the text is so simple and not engaging enough to read hundreds of times in my own language. Reading it to my son in Spanish keeps it interesting for me, and it's good language development for him. The Spanish translation is dominant, with the English written in much smaller font underneath. There are translations of all the pictured animals. On each page a baby animal explains why he loves his mother (she feeds me when I'm hungry, she keeps me nice and clean, she comes when I call, etc. The charm of this book is the images of the animal mother/child pairs doing their versions of these same things that we do. I find myself relating to these wonderful animal mommies and imagining the love between them and their babies! The book was published in 1991, and yes, the images do seem dated, but it's easy to look past that. My one complaint is the spread that reads "I love my mommy because she is not afraid of the dark." My son is too young for it to occur to him to be scared of the dark, and I don't need a book to introduce that idea to him. Instead I read "I love my mommy because she tucks me in at night" (the image is a serene moonlit scene of a animals nesting down in the forest). There is a
Compre varios libros para mi hija, ella va a la guardería y escucha inglés todo el tiempo, entonces yo aseguro que en casa hablemos en Español, y quería libros que esten bien escritos, y de buen contenido para una niña de dos años. Ella ama sus libros, tiene fotos hermosas de muchos animales con sus crías. Lo recomiendo.
Bought this story and I Love My Daddy Because... for a baby shower gift for a couple who will be raising their baby bilingual. The story is beautiful using animals in nature to describe all the things moms and dads do for their children. Having both languages will allow both parents to read to their new baby.
Adorable bilingual book. Overall the translation is spot on and the pictures are eye catching and keep the child interested and asking questions like what animal is that. Plus they label the animals in both languages! Great for mothers day!
Using this to introduce our daughter to Spanish since one set of grandparents only speak Spanish. Very cute and simple to read. Great pictures too! My daughter loves it and dad loves reading them to her. Also helps me out with both English and Spanish words since I don't speak Spanish.
Cute book, easy to read. Love that it is in English and spanish (it's like 2 books in 1!). It is a sturdy board book. I also like that it gives examples of nontraditional mom roles as well, like my mom is big and strong or shes not afraid of the dark. Very much through the eyes of a kid.
I love this book! I read it to my 4 month old in Spanish and English. I really like that it uses different animals than what is normally in a infant book so I am exposing him to different vocabulary. I like how the reason for the loving the parent matches what the animals are doing in the picture. The Spanish translation is accurate. Also if you are thinking of buying the dad version it is a good choice because they have different animals and different reasons for loving dad.
