Toddler-PreS–Bold, colorful illustrations and brief, easy-to-read Spanish text welcome young readers into a story in which a wolf is playing hide-and-seek with a little pig. Readers will join in on the fun of trying to locate the little pig in each spread as the wolf gets closer and closer to finding it, practicing positional words, such as detras, debajo, and en, along the way. From the yard outdoors to the inside of a house, kids will also delight in spotting other quirky animals in each illustration. When the wolf finally catches the little pig, children will laugh when they realize that the wolf was the only one playing all along. The digital art is inviting, with lots of white space and bright hues that pop. The expressive text makes this a great read-aloud that will have listeners mimicking the rambunctious wolf as he loudly asks for help with his search.
VERDICT A great addition to Spanish board book collections for children, and an excellent choice for an interactive story time.
