¡Olinguito, de la A a la Z! Descubriendo el bosque nublado /Olinguito, from A to Z! Unveiling the Cloud Forest
Three-time Pura Belpré honoree Delacre combines two things—wildlife science and the alphabet—something hardly uncommon yet executed here with uncommon skill. Though the book is bilingual, its slight emphasis upon Spanish over English is not only appropriate, it should work to spark the curiosity of kids fluent only in the latter. Four-fifths of each page is dominated by Delacre’s bright, often pastel depictions of animals positioned so close to the reader it’s as if they are right behind safety glass. Keep an eye out for that foxy olinguito and the zoologist too, who come face to face shortly before Delacre closes with fabulous back matter, including the story behind the creature’s 2006 discovery and a lovely illustrated glossary to every plant and animal. Everything here in is perfect harmony.
