This book incorporates some Spanish words and defines them throughout the text of the story. The last page circles back to the beginning, but as a reader who’s not familiar with Spanish, the text of the ending seemed a little off. I wished it would have had phonetic spelling of the Spanish words, but I liked that the story used comparisons, along with the cute illustrations, to help you understand the meaning of the words you’re learning.
