Animales de colores - Amazonia, by Santiago Parreño, is a beautifully illustrated book about the animals of the Amazon rainforest. Through the story we meet a blue morpho butterfly, a toucan, an armadillo, a manatee, a pink river dolphin, a capibara, a coati, spider monkeys, parrots, sloths and more! Simple language and delightful illustrations make this the perfect addition to a thematic unit on the South American rainforest!!

Rik, el niño sin imaginación, is a funny story about a kid who seems to have no imagination, until he loses his mother at the mall and panics. The story is sweet and the illustrations - a mix of photos and drawings - are clever (Rik is a thumb!) A fun story for beginning to intermediate students of Spanish.
