Review
When I saw the book, I thought is a must read book! And I know some of the people interviewed for this book. Yet the narrative of the book was a little flat. Maybe the editors tried to look impartial yet... Well I least I know more about of some of our local Immigrants Latino organizers. You saved me to ask them. Oh I am glad it is bilingual  Library Catalog

Review
The illustrations in this book are much closer to what an infant/toddler might actually see and interact with compared to other "first ABC" type books. A nice addition is the there are tracks for older toddlers to run their fingers along the capital letters--I wish the lowercase were the same way!  Library Catalog
