Eight Animals Play Ball

Eight Animals Play Ball

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 1. Another inventive offering from the team that brought readers Eight Animals Bake a Cake (2002). When eight go to the park, they take various toys and equipment, such as Raton the mouse's and Pajaro the bird's kite. But they decide to play baseball because they can do that together. Umpire Vaca's call leads to a few hard feelings, but when it starts to rain, sharing coats and wings as shelter brings them all together again. Elya produces a bouncy, rhymed story that mixes English and Spanish words in a way that teaches both. Chapman's fiesta-colored cartoon-style art neatly portrays the characters and the fun. Each image sits in its brightly bordered frame, and each frame usually includes a direct word translation: strike! equals estrai! A merry way to teach a little English, a little Spanish, and lots of good cooperation. A glossary and pronunciation guides are included. GraceAnne DeCandido
