Series Made Simple
This series in Spanish introduces beginning readers to all the colors of the rainbow and where to find them in nature, at home, and more. Examples of everyday objects in every color are shown in detailed, vibrant full-color photographs. Each page is limited to one line of text or a short caption—and in a few cases, both—without overwhelming readers who are just starting to practice letter recognition. This series is notable for its lyrical quality: Rhyming words end each section, making this an engaging selection for reading aloud or one-on-one. A visual glossary accompanies each volume, and the “¡Repasemos! / Let’s Review!” section asks thoughtful questions to further critical thinking skills. VERDICT A colorful and playful addition to an early literacy collection.
