PreS-Gr 1—An illustrated narrative nonfiction series, aimed at instilling healthy eating habits in children. Each title gives examples of healthy food kids can eat at the different meals. For Puedo merendar, Qué desayuno, and Una cena deliciosa a different family is illustrated in a realistic setting. Vamos a almorzar takes place in a school setting. The attractive illustrations represent people of different ethnicities and families, as well as a father with a prosthetic leg. The Spanish translation is correct. However, there is one factual mistake: strawberries do not grow on waist-high bushes.
VERDICT Consider as an additional selection.
