PreS-Gr 2–A father, his children, and their dog have a fun day out in the city, taking in all the sights and sounds. They go to the dog park, enjoy ice cream, study the buildings, walk by construction sites, have refreshments, and pass by strangers and friends. They head back home to a nice meal with their neighbors after a good day in the city. The illustrations are full of color and excellently depict a busy city that might often be loud and crowded, but is also interesting with things to see at every turn. Young readers will enjoy hours of fun looking through each page and pointing out the myriad activities, such as dogs playing together, people buying bread and newspapers, and children drawing with chalk on the sidewalks. The Spanish text includes conversations among the family and citizens as well as noises and phrases one might hear when out and about. Activities and suggestions for families heading out to the city are included.
VERDICT A lively picture book focusing on the many wonders that can be seen in a busy city, this title is a fun and interactive addition to Spanish picture book collections.
