Como Era Yo Cuando Era Bebe

Jeanne Willis. Grupo Editorial Norma, $8.95 (32pp) ISBN 978-958-04-6031-2

PreS-Gr 2-Child-centered in its approach, this book evokes the wonderment of young readers. Its lesson, that youngsters resemble their parents in one way or another, is invaluable and universal. Subsequent pages address similar queries from a young baboon, hippopotamus, leopard, ostrich, snake, hyena, warthog, chameleon, and polar bear. Unfortunately, the text does not flow as expected or desired. The humorous, cartoonlike illustrations add a pleasing dimension and offer more of a story than the simple text. Overall, an appealing choice for libraries and bookstores. Marietta Barral Zacker, Atlanta Book Consulting, GA
