Book Review: Si Un Brontosauria by Katherine Mead (Brontosaurus Came to Tea)

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Summary

This picture book shows a character preparing for different dinosaurs to come to tea. He makes sure to set out each of their favorite foods. It is written in a cute rhyming fashion. 

What I Liked

  • It is just plain adorable 
  • Dinosaurs 
  • Great for learning new Spanish words! 

What I Didn’t Like

  • The illustrations where a little dark (color-wise) to be honest, but very reflective of illustrations back in my childhood I believe. 

In Conclusion

If you or your child loves dinosaurs, then pick up this book. If you are learning a new language and want to learn dinosaur vocabulary, pick up this book in the new language.

Book Review: Asi Es Josefina (Meet Josefina) by Valerie Tripp

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Summary

Josefina lives with her sisters on a ranch outside of Santa Fe. In this book we get to see a snapshot of her life as her grandfather comes back from his trip to Mexico City. And with him comes special visitor!

What I Liked

  • It was fun to learn some of the history of the Santa Fe area. I’ve been there, but never considered much of its past. Learning about the Camino Real was also pretty cool.
  • It was a great way for me to practice my Spanish. (I read it in Spanish.)
  • Overall this was a pretty cute story. It’s hard for me to imagine what life was like even two hundred years ago, so it was cool to jump into a snippet of it.

What I Didn’t Like

  • Because it was written for a younger age, it wasn’t as enthralling for me. The story line was fairly simple, and the main antagonist was a goat.

In Conclusion

If you want to practice your Spanish, you’ll enjoy this book. If you’re an elementary school reader, you’ll probably enjoy it too.
