I Love Saturdays y Domingos

I Love Saturdays y Domingos Read ✓ 2 Rican While the two sets of grandparents are different in many ways they also have a great deal in common in particular their love for their granddaughter While we follow our narrator to the circus and the pier share stories from her grand. I liked the integration of Spanish words into the text and how the pages alternated back and forth between the child spending time with her two sets of grandparents The part of this book that made me uncomfortable were the few pages featuring the circus The little girl talked about how she loved seeing the mama and baby elephant the giraffes lions and tigers in the live circus When we reached this part in the story it provided a great opportunity to explain to my daughter why circuses create a very unnatural and cruel life for animals It saddens me to read so many picture books where joy is expressed at seeing captured wild animals imprisoned in zoos and circuses

I Love Saturdays y Domingos Read ✓ 2 Saturdays and Sundays are very special days for the child in this story On Saturdays she visits Grandma and Grandpa who come from a European American background and on Sundays los domingos she visits Abuelito y Abuelita who are Mexican Ame. The girl narrator of this story likes Saturdays because she visits her father s parents and Sundays because that s when she visits her mother s parents and then for her birthday both sides of the family come together to celebrateI really wish there had been a glossary of Spanish words in the back of the book or an English Spanish Spanish English dictionarytranslation but I m ambivalent about that given that I figured out all but a couple Spanish words on my own and my knowledge of Spanish is paltry So the story did an excellent job of making the Spanish word meanings clear and I ll assume the English words as wellOne side of this girl s family is European American and the other is Mexican American and Native American too Some family history is told via the grandparents telling stories about their backgrounds to their granddaughterThis is a terrific book for children learning English or Spanish for bilingual children and for multi cultural childrenBut the best part of this book is the story It s a sweet story about love between grandparents and grandchild the affection shown transcends the cultural heritage of the family members It s a lovely family story about a loved and loving little girlI thoroughly enjoyed the illustrations I particularly loved the scenes with the girl and her grandparents pets The colors used were incredibly pleasing to the eye I loved the matching dresses at the end and I loved the girl s favorite color too The illustrations perfectly complemented the story
