“Sing, laugh, and play along with this interactive, bilingual board book that’s inspired by a traditional Colombian folk song. Each day of the week, Piggy loves to play outside with little sunny sunshine/sol solecito, and he loves admiring the moon when the day is done. Readers will learn the days of the week in English and Spanish, as well as activities for daytime and bedtime. The clever layout, which includes lift-the-flap surprises and a Spanish-English reversible design, is complemented by a playful, rhyming text in both languages. Bright, captivating yet simple illustrations and vibrant colors throughout the book make it ideal for very young readers and their caregivers. This is the sixth book in the series by the same author, including The Birthday Book/Las Mañanitas and Little Elephants/Elefantitos, and is equally deserving of space in any early literacy collection. The publisher has developed a sing-along app to accompany the book, which offers another opportunity for interaction. VERDICT Equal parts practical and playful, this sturdy board book is an ideal addition to any early literacy collection, and will engage speakers of both English and Spanish.” —Natalie Romano, School Library Journal
“Bright and cheerful illustrations stand out against a white background, but the real showstopper is a glowing sun with orange and gold foil rays that turn with a spinning wheel...With singing, interactive, and learning possibilities, this is another delightful addition to the series.” —Kirkus Review
“A perfect addition to bilingual collections for toddlers and preschoolers, and a great way to introduce young readers to traditional Spanish children's songs.” —Booklist
