"Uniquely designed with English on one side and Spanish on the
other, this cute lift the flap story is fun for little hands.” —

“Beautiful illustrations with vibrant colors … make the characters pop. Parents will love these books for teaching a second language to their child when their little brains are like sponges, taking in everything like the little geniuses they are." — Sue Morris, Kid Lit Reviews
"In 'Pin Pon', the baby elephant meets Pin Pon, a character made of cardboard, who nonetheless models washing his face with soap and water and other behaviors that make adults happy, such as using two hands to pick up a cup of milk and nodding right off to sleep. The art here is similarly bright and sweet, with round-cheeked Pin Pon glowing with chubby cuteness. I like that families can read both English and Spanish versions." — Stephanie Tournas, Youth Services Book Review
“Beautifully written and illustrated board books allow parents, teachers and caregivers to share words, letters, nursery rhymes and songs with their little ones that will help them increase their vocabulary in both English and Spanish.
I love Canticos books for little ones. Their high quality ensures they’ll be an excellent gift to share with the young children and parents in your life. Visit canticosworld.com to learn more about their wonderful products and place an order today!" — Susan Heim
"These beautiful bilingual board books have been a hit with our youngest reader! They are also a top choice for my husband to grab since he is fluent in Spanish and enjoys the chance to share the language with her. My older kids love joining in and learning some new words too. These books are illustrated with the characters from the Emmy nominated @canticosworld bilingual musical preschool series on @nickjr but can be fully enjoyed whether you’re familiar with the show or not. We read the books first. They are beautifully designed and sturdily built with both English and Spanish words throughout. Some of the titles are available in both small lift the flap book form or larger accordion style. Our favorite is the accordion style because the kids can surround themselves with the book." — Stephanie Price, Because My Mother Read
