REFORMA Review: Bebé Goes to the Beach

Bebé Goes to the Beach 
By Susan Middleton Elya, illustrated by Steven Salerno 
Harcourt, 2008. Unpaged. $16.00 (Hardcover). ISBN 978-0-15-206000-8. 
Grades PreK-1 
English with embedded Spanish.

In this rollicking sequel to Bebé Goes Shopping, mamá attempts to keep her bebé entertained all the while trying to soak up the sun. Keeping with the style of the Shopping book, bouncy English text is sprinkled with Spanish phrases that, for the most part, can be understood via contextual clues. Salerno’s animated illustrations exude a vintage flair that will remind young children of their favorite cartoon. A hot choice for summer preschool storytimes!
