Summary:  In this follow up to How Do You Say? Como Se Dice?*, Angela Dominguez’s two giraffes meet up with an ostrich.  They immediately start asking questions in English and Spanish: How are you? Are you shy? Are you hungry? The ostrich answers no to everything. Finally, she reveals how she is feeling:  She is excited because she has two new amigos! *(If anyone knows how to do accents or upside down question marks in Google Docs, please email me!)  32 pages; ages 3-7.

Pros:  The cute animals will appeal to the very youngest readers, and older kids will have fun learning some Spanish (or reading it for their friends if they already speak it).  

Cons:  A list of all the phrases or words from the book in both languages would have been a nice addition at the end.

  1. Hi,

    To add an upside down question mark in google docs go to the insert tab and choose special characters, then select punctuation from the first drop-down menu. To add letters with accent marks, go to the insert tab and choose special characters, then select Latin (in this case) from the drop-down menu.
