Review by: AudioFile Magazine - February 1, 2014
"Making arroz con leche (rice pudding) requires many ingredients and many helpers. Travel to the farmyard, listen in as the farm maiden cooks in her pot, dance while the cazuela bubbles, and savor the treat. Each ingredient is introduced in English the first time, and each repetition, of which there are many, is in Spanish. Adriana Sananes's leisurely pacing and precise enunciation will enable non-Spanish-speaking listeners to pick up the meaning of many Spanish words--such as "huevo from the gallina" and "mantequilla from the vacca"--as will poring over the award-winning illustrations of Rafael Lopez. A recipe for arroz con leche and a glossary and pronunciation guide for the Spanish words complete this read-along production."
Review by: School Library Journal - January 9, 2014
"K-Gr 4–What’s in the pot that the farm maiden stirs? Well, into that cazuela goes lime, rice, sugar, milk, eggs, and butter, all brought by different animals. Each is introduced in English, but subsequent appearances use their Spanish names. The list of ingredients and participants grows with each page, offering listeners a chance to pick up the vocabulary through repetition, while enjoying the delightful illustrations by Rafael Lopez. The book (Charlesbridge, 2011) receives stellar treatment here. Narrator Adriana Sananes provides an authentic Spanish accent for the Spanish words, and clear English for the rest of the text. This is a delightful bilingual romp, and teachers will appreciate the chance to compare and contrast the story with the English “This is the House That Jack Built.” There’s even a recipe for Arroz Con Leche (rice pudding) at the end of the book, as well as a glossary of the Spanish words. This is both a visual and an auditory treat that is sure to stir up a lot of enthusiasm from any audience."
