“Beautiful illustrations with vibrant colors … make the characters pop. Parents will love these books for teaching a second language to their child when their little brains are like sponges, taking in everything like the little geniuses they are.” —Sue Morris, Kid Lit Reviews
“A fun way to practice naming objects in two languages.” —Kirkus Reviews
“These beautiful bilingual board books have been a hit with our youngest reader! They are also a top choice for my husband to grab since he is fluent in Spanish and enjoys the chance to share the language with her. My older kids love joining in and learning some new words too. These books are illustrated with the characters from the Emmy nominated @canticosworld bilingual musical preschool series on @nickjr but can be fully enjoyed whether you’re familiar with the show or not. We read the books first. They are beautifully designed and sturdily built with both English and Spanish words throughout. Some of the titles are available in both small lift the flap book form or larger accordion style. Our favorite is the accordion style because the kids can surround themselves with the book.” —Stephanie Price, Because My Mother Read
STARRED REVIEW: "Returning fans of the beloved “Canticos” board books will enjoy these additions, and new readers will discover why this series is award-winning. First 100 Words spotlights words for common and not-so-common animals and items that are found in places like the kitchen, at a party, or in the ocean. Familiar characters, such as the yellow chicks (pollitos) and the little elephant (elefantito), fashion outfits like a mermaid tail and have fun cooking and playing at the beach while readers explore words in English and Spanish. Each spread is vibrantly illustrated, depicting a cartoony scene relevant to the words featured...Young readers and their parents will thoroughly enjoy spotting all the fun activities taking place in these titles, and the colorful and lively illustrations and clear text are sure to make these joyful favorites. VERDICT: Highly recommended for all Spanish and bilingual board book collections for children." —Selenia Paz, Harris County P.L., Houston for School Library Journal
