¡Vamos! Let's Go to the Market by Raúl the Third - ESSENTIAL

¡Vamos! Let's Go to the Market by Raúl the Third PICTURE BOOK Versify, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2019 $15.00 9781328557261



Little Lobo has a very busy day planned. He and his dog Bernabé have lots of deliveries to make all over the Mercado, so they fill their wagon and head to market. Such a busy place! Shoe polish to Chiva's Zonkey, paintbrushes to the portrait studio with lots of stops inbetween - but the best delivery of all . . . a delivery to his favorite wrestler. 

 Raúl the Third is the author of the Lowriders in Space graphic novel series, and I love his picture book. It reminds me of Richard Scarry's books - took me right back - such a nostalgic feel, but new, for this generation. Every scene is full of busy busy townsfolk, lots of details on every page with words in both Spanish and English. I loved the names of the friends - Kooky Dooky is the rooster - the funny things happening at each stop, and the way Spanish is mixed with English. Read and re-read, spend lots of time looking at the illustrations, and enjoy your trip to the Mercado.
