As you can see, these are not your run of the mill concept books. They are filled with bold vivid images of world class art from the collections at the San Antonio Museum of Art! It's fantastic really, museum quality art pieces brought straight to tiny tots in bright and imaginative board books! I kind of love the idea! (In case you couldn't tell.)
AND! They're bilingual!! The concepts are taught in both English and Spanish! It's simple and fun (and don't tell Cuteness, but I prefer these to learning Spanish from Dora.) Actually, Cuteness has completely taken ownership of these books, when I tried to take them out of her room last night she was like, "Hey, those are my books. I need my books!"
As I said, I have a thing for board books anyway, but when you go and add culture and color and artwork from around the world...that's really the icing on the cake! Eventually there will be 9 books in this series with the next two coming out sometime this spring. I can't wait! (Though I suppose I'll have to share them with Cuteness...or maybe I should say I hope she'll share them with me!)
Happy reading! Adios!
