PreS-Gr 2–When an egg begins to hatch, a group of birds gathers around, anxious to see what kind of bird will emerge. The young hatchling introduces himself as Tim, and the birds all soon agree that he must learn to fly. Different types of birds give their advice—an owl, a blackbird, a duck—but while they offer their opinions, Tim is not really paying attention. Just as Tim is about to test out some wings the birds made for him, he shouts that he really doesn’t want to learn how. When Tim’s Papá arrives, the birds finally realize why Tim has no interest in flying. This humorous Spanish-language picture book starts with an exciting moment as Tim hatches and continues as different birds give their own suggestions. Readers will laugh as they see Tim wandering off, not paying attention and doing as he pleases. The realistic illustrations are lovingly painted and show the birds as they might be found in nature, while also giving them unique expressions and personalities. The short Spanish text and conversations are the perfect length, and combine well with the illustrations to complete the story.
VERDICT A fun Spanish-language picture book perfect for fans of humorous stories involving animals.
