Un poco perdido
When a little owl falls out of his nest, will an overly enthusiastic squirrel be able to help him find his mom? Losing a parent is usually pretty scary, but little kids will laugh when squirrel keeps presenting what MUST be the little owl’s mom, but instead, it’s a huge bear, a rabbit with tall ears, and a frog with big eyes! Complete with a happy ending and a hint to an additional adventure this book has humor, repetition, and cartoon-like drawings that every kid will love.
This picture book has a cover that kids will reach for, with a very sweet little owl. More abstract representations and subdued colors extend the range of whom it might appeal to, as I would read it again at eleven to practice my Spanish.
Told entirely in Spanish, Un Poco Perdido will appeal to native Spanish speakers, beginning Spanish speakers (like me!), and even those that don’t know any Spanish at all as the tale is so universal and well told in pictures. It reminded me a little bit of the classic, Are you my mother? by P.D. Eastman. Un Poco Perdido will be a hit and one that kids will return to again and again.
