This bilingual color concept book for preschoolers follows a sister and brother duo as they gather the items necessary for a backyard outing. “¿Qué necesitamos? What do we need? / Mi mochila azul. My blue backpack. / ¿Algo más? Anything else? Mi chaqueta roja. My red jacket.” The alternating Spanish and English sentences are easily readable by speakers of either language. Warm illustrations invite readers to join in the adventure, while visually reinforcing the featured color of each two-page spread. MVL ©2005 Cooperative Children’s Book Center
