I am a mother of 3. My oldest will be 4 soon and loves for us to read to her. I ordered this book because we speak to her mainly in spanish at home because we want her to learn it and keep it. At school it's nothing but english so this is a way for us to push the spanish. She loves this book and so do I. It has a lot of the classical stories and it's all in spanish. I definitely recommend it.
This book is filled with stories from our Latino-Spanish tradition. That it doesn't have illustrations does not bother me because they are a perfect vehicle for adults to read a story to themselves and then retell it in their own words just like our elders did.
I'm a children's book author and love colorful illustrations, in fact my instructions to my illustrators always include the request for happy colors. In this case however, the stories suffice. Make them your own. Your little ones' imaginations will fill in the blanks and take care of the rest. These are also a perfect vehicle to enrich children's vocabulary. Don't dumb them down. Kids are smart. They get more than we give them credit for. Check understanding using casual conversation and they will never forget those moments with you.
