From the time they wake up in the morning, a Latino boy and his father have fun. They cook breakfast, walk out to the park, and then take the bus to visit Abuelo and Abuela. The simple words, in both Spanish and English, and the bright, exuberant unframed double-page pictures celebrate the loving connection between parent and child—whether they are standing close together sharing stories on the crowded bus or the boy tells his father, “I am flying, flying” as he climbs a tree. The big, swirling circles in the artwork embrace the characters within the widening arcs of sky and waves, as when the boy, his father, and the grandparents meet in one tight hug while the sun sets. Their curving bodies, set against the geometric shapes of the turning globe, evoke the magical realism of traditional Latino art. The father speaks Spanish, the boy is bilingual, and both English- and Spanish-speaking children will recognize the family connections. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Hazel Rochman
