Hora de dormir del conejo (English/Spanish)

Type of Product:
HORA DE DORMIR DEL CONEJO is a beautifully translated bilingual edition of Nancy Elizabeth Wallace"s popular RABBIT'S BEDTIME. Each page contains the Spanish text, followed by the English text in italics. The lyrical words and simple, colorful artwork invite readers young and old to reflect on a day well spent. Published last spring, the English edition of RABBIT'S BEDTIME received great acclaim. It was chosen for the Read to Grow literacy program. Here is what Kirkus Reviews had to say about the book: "As a young rabbit prepares for sleep, the pleasures of the day are recounted in couplets: "Time with others. Time alone. Time to nurture seeds I"ve sown." In the day, there was also time to play, sing, cuddle, and hug. Each activity is impressively captured in Wallace"s distinctive cut-paper artwork; the colors invite readers to linger, and the scenes are immediately recognizable. The positions struck by the rabbits — e.g., two bunnies dancing about in the spray of a sprinkler — are remarkably natural. While the rhymes and imagery are highly accessible, Wallace has added incidentals that expand the age range for the book, such as ladybugs, dragonflies, or a crab in a fish tank, that are fun to discover and identify." 2000, 32pp, 7.25 x 7.25, for age 4-7.
