Reading contracts all day long. Not bad, but not quite as fun as reading about hobbits.

This is a fantastic dual language shapes book. The only words on each page are the names of the shape in English and Spanish. The illustrations are beautiful and creative. Each page teaches a shape on the left and then incorporates that shape into a design reminiscent of the ancient Aztec empire and the emperor Cuauhtemoc.

This bilingual shapes board book is a great introduction to shapes, Spanish, and Aztec art and architecture. While it's a simple book, there's a lot to talk about, so it could easily be tailored to any baby, toddler, or pre-schooler. It's also fun to notice how some words in English and Spanish look and sound very different and others look and sound almost exactly the same.

Patty Rodriguez, unable to find bilingual first concept books she could enjoy reading to her baby, Patty came up with the idea behind Lil’ Libros. Mother of two and a community leader that enjoys empowering tomorrow’s young leaders at conferences and summits, can be seen on a Saturday morning cheering her oldest son at a soccer game. You can listen to her every morning on On Air with Ryan Seacrest.
