Recommended Age: read together: 0 to 4; read yourself: 6 to 8

Age of Child: First started reading when child was 9 months old.

Young Reader Reaction: As the child's identification skills expanded, the interest in reading the Spanish (vice the English) version increased.

Adult Reader Reaction: In English or Spanish, it's a pretty straightforward book. It's a great opportunity to practice pronunciation and expand one's vocabulary.

Pros: It's great to find a classic in a different language! With a known story, it's easier to introduce a second language to our child.

Cons: This isn't an easy read for early/beginning Spanish speakers.

Borrow or Buy: If you're not a native or conversational Spanish speaker, borrow it first to see how comfortable you are with the vocabulary and pronunciation.
