Review for Books4Spain by Zacarias Flores Watson, aged 6... "I really liked this book because I learned lots about Spain, where I live, and about football, and about Spanish too. The bit about how you say what your name is in all the different languages of Spain was great. I also liked the maps. I want to go to Donana park to see a lynx and I want to make the volcano."Some observations by his mum: "He's a bit young to read it all on his own (it's for ages 7-10), so we dipped in and out. It's about a professional footballer who goes to Barcelona to visit his friend Javier, a mad-keen FC Barcelona fan. They visit famous sites in the city, and learn about food, culture, fiestas, history, nature; they also go to Madrid, Palos de la Frontera, Donana Park, Gibraltar, the Canary Islands, and to the mountains. It's a great introduction to Spain for children. It's written for a North American audience, so there are some different words and specific USA-based references. In visual terms (important for the parent, if not the child!) the design is great - very colourful (liked the page numbers in Spain's national colours), bold patterns behind the text, easy-to-spot boxed-out information, lists and vocabulary. Really liked the illustration style too. The craft projects are fun, though the volcano sounds rather messy, so not sure if we'll be doing that!" A great way to introduce soccer loving youngsters to Spain and its culture." -- Stories for Children Magazine (May 12, 2011) "Kids will be engaged since the narrator is a boy who loves soccer!" --Tracy Alley, www.swonlibraries.org This small colorful book covers Spain's history, culture, and geography quite nicely for young readers.
