Feliz / Happy - Booklist Review August 2017

Posted by Rourke Educational Media Admin on

Multiethnic babies smile from every page of this bilingual board book, which seeks to illustrate happiness. An emotion can be a tricky thing to define, but this book manages it by drawing attention to behaviors commonly associated with this feeling. The layout is clean and inviting, featuring a close-up photo of one child per page, placed against a white backdrop. Simple, colorful text runs along the top and bottom of the pages, with English words printed in red and Spanish in blue. Starting a prompt, "When I am happy," the book offers cheerful possibilities, such as "I am silly / soy bobo." Gleeful babies are shown smiling, clapping, laughing, and squealing, and it's likely youngsters perusing the book's pages will mirror many of these joyful expressions.
