Buenas Noches Motores / Good Night Engines by Denise Dowling Mortensen -- ADVISABLE

Mortensen, Denise Dowling Buenas Noches Motores / Good Night Engines, illustrated by Melissa Iwai. BOARD BOOK. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2003. $4.99. Content: G.

In this bilingual board book, a young boy puts his toy trains, trucks, planes, and other vehicles to bed before he himself is tucked in. The mostly-rhyming text has a gentle rhythm in both Spanish and English. A wonderful going-to-bed book for those who love vehicles. I do wish the text were larger, however, since it would be very difficult to read in low-light situations (such as a darkened bedroom) or by a child.

Pre-K -- ADVISABLE. Reviewed by Sydney G., K-6 Library Media Specialist
