Move over Eric Carle

We have checked out and read the book "Oso polar, oso polar" (Polar Bear, Polar Bear) many times from the library and it is one of the boys' favorites. Recently we found a copy of "Oso pardo, Oso pardo" (Brown Bear, Brown Bear) and it was equally popular with the boys. The following project, I am very proud to say, was completely Diego's idea. He wanted to make his own book with a Black Bear (Oso Negro). I provided him with a stack of paper and helped him with the cover paper. This was a great opportunity to talk about cover pages, authors, and illustrators. Besides that, Diego grabbed his crayon and started illustrating "Oso Negro, Oso negro, Que hueles allí?" (Black Bear, Black Bear, What do you smell?) I wrote down his words and we stapled it together like a book. He told me that he would like to take it to the library so that Mema and Papa (my parents) can check it out to learn more Spanish. :)

  2. Wow! Diego is quite an artist. I cannot imagine that daughter will draw so well in a few months. What an awesome idea from him - maybe he will grow up to become a children book writer. I hope you are keeping this one!
