Mandy and Andy Books
Kids who want to improve their English or SpanishÃ¢â‚¬â€or who just love animalsÃ¢â‚¬â€will enjoy this colorful bilingual romp through the zoo with young guides Mandy and Andy. The story and pictures will appeal to animal lovers conversant in any language. Tom StiglichÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s bright, illustrations feature bright, saturated colors, often in unexpected combinations (for example, a golden brown owls against a purple night time sky; the light blue shadowed faces of Mandy and Andy as they look through a glass enclosure at reptiles. Stiglish draws big eyes on his creatures; this makes it easy to recognize the Ã¢â‚“emotionsÃ¢â‚¬Â of the reptiles, birds, lions and tigers and bears (oh my!), monkeys, seals, peacocks, and other zoo inhabitants. He makes the zoo an inviting, friendly place...even the polar bear resembles a friendly mouse more than the mighty ruler of the North Pole.
Author William Adams keeps our tour lively and uncluttered, foucsing on one animal enclosure at a time. Perhaps his musical sensibilities informed this measured but engaging pace: A short bio (between the English and Spanish versions of the book) reveals that Adams is a songwriter and record producer, including an album with Ã¢â‚“BuffaloÃ¢â‚¬Â Bob Smith and the original cast of Ã¢â‚“the Howdy Doody Show!Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬ÂBooks Kids Can Flip Over.Ã¢â‚¬Â AdamsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ slogan is not only a clever pun, but the key to reading the book biligually. Start with either the Spanish or English versions, read to the middle, and then close the book and flip it over (from top to bottom, not from side to side). Now you can read the book in the other language!
