Peque y yo (Spanish Edition)
Peque y Yo tells the story of a boy who recently lost his dog, Peque. He shows signs of sadness and loss, and he expresses them from a child’s perspective. For example, when he cannot stop crying, he thinks that soap must be stuck in his eyes, and when his heart hurts, he assumes an octopus must be squeezing it.
I enjoyed this book as the illustrations had unique styles and colors when compared with most picture books I’ve read. At thirteen years old, I liked the pictures; however, I think they would appeal more to a younger reader. As an intermediate Spanish learner, I had to search for a few Spanish words, so I believe that readers should have some previous experience with the language.
My favorite part of this story was the fact that it was told from the perspective of a child who doesn’t really understand their feelings yet and talks about them as abstract things that kids will relate to. I would recommend this book to anyone who has felt big loss or anyone looking to expand their Spanish vocabulary.
