La Familia Numerozzi = The Family Minus

Fernando Krahn, Author Kane/Miller Book Publishers $6.95 (0p) ISBN 978-980-257-247-2
K-Gr 2-It is an exciting morning as M ximo and Divina Numerozzi bustle to get their eight children ready for school. Readers see them bathe, dress, eat, and complain as they eventually make their way out the door, dressed in charming uniforms. M ximo looks stressed trying to make it to work on time, as the car won't start. However, Divina comes to the rescue with her latest invention. The final scene leaves children with the impression that this is merely another typical day in the Numerozzi family. To illustrate this fun story that will entertain children time and time again, Krahn uses white to frame each scene, creating an effective contrast with brilliant watercolors. Especially appropriate as a read- aloud, this book will be an interesting addition to any collection. Paul M. Kienlen, Alicia R. Chac""n International School, El Paso, TX
