Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Ea. vol.: 2001. 32p. illus. Heinemann, $21.36. Gr. 2-4, younger for reading aloud. These books in the Vamos a series introduce the land, culture, and people of four Spanish-speaking countries--Puerto Rico, Colombia, Costa Rica, and Cuba. The texts are repetitive and somewhat dry, but they are easy to read, filled with facts, and accompanied by color illustrations and simple maps. Unfortunately, the nouns in the well-conceived glossaries are listed without the definite articles that accompany nouns in Spanish. Language learners won't, for example, know that capital is a feminine noun and aji is masculine."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Gr 2-4-These informative and colorful books can be placed either in a reference collection or in a circulating collection. The title pages feature a world map with the respective country highlighted, and a table of contents outlines the broad subject categories covered (e.g., points of interest, homes, food, clothing, work, transportation, language, education, entertainment, celebrations, and the arts). Information is offered in simple statements without commentary, the attractive layout features full-color photographs of children in many different scenes, and selected words are bolded within the text and later explained in the glossary. Appended are key facts about the country, an index, a bibliography, and a short list of words and their many variants (e.g., apartamento-departamento; bus-autob£s-cami¢n; calabaza-guaje). These books will be invaluable for homework assignments and will appeal to readers who are curious about life in other countries. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
