Reviews for Mi piramide alimentaria / My Food Pyramid

School Library Journal Reviews 2011 May

PreS-Gr 1--These simple texts are complemented with large and bright photographs on every page. Each title includes questions that are explored throughout, such as: "What are fruits?" or "How do vegetables help us?" A "test" or "search" game is appended to encourage children to look at a photo and answer a question. For example, in La carne, a photograph depicts a dinner plate with sliced chicken, sliced baby potatoes, a salad, a small bowl of fruit, and a glass of juice. The question is "Can you find the meat?" An illustrated glossary for Spanish learners and an index with notes for parents and teachers are appended. Solid purchases for schools and libraries needing easy-to-read nonfiction.--Angélica Sauceda, Anaheim Public Library, CA
