Quinito, Day and Night = Quinito, dia y noche

by Ina Cumpiano
Illustrated by José Ramírez

Published by Children's Book Press, 2008
22 pages
ISBN: 9780892392261

Ages 2-5

Young Quinito describes members of his family and activities in his daily life as a series of comparisons highlighting opposites in this engaging concept book. “My Mami is short. My Papi is tall. I’m not short. I’m not tall. I’m just the right size.” Quinito also wakes up at just the right time, unlike his sister, Clara, who wakes up early, and his brother, Juan, who wakes up late. Rain makes him sad, sun makes him happy. Clara runs slowly while Juan runs fast. Ida Cumpiano manages to express Quinito’s winning personality in a brief bilingual (English/Spanish) narrative illustrated by José Ramírez with lush, rich colors on textured canvas and featuring a beautiful brown-skinned boy and his intergenerational Latino family.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
