It isn't often that my youngest child, my son, will choose a spanish language book for his bedtime story. Federico Dice No is the exception. When it comes hearing a story about the growing pains and joys of similar-aged Federico, my son Lautaro dice si!
The whole series encompasses seven books that follow Federico as he grows, tests his independence, learns to use a potty, becomes a big brother, begins to share and other important events to the preschool set. I love the little clues that tell me Federico lives in Argentina (which is where we bought the series). Federico drinks mate with his abuela. Federico wears La Boca futbol team colors when he goes to "la cancha" (stadium, in Spain, one would say, "estadio").
Federico Dice No by Graciela Montes is by far my children's favorite of the Federico series. They enjoy chanting "no" along with Federico in response to requests to put on a jacket, take a bath and go to bed. There is a little mouse-like creature that accompanies Federico in each book. In Federico Dice No, whenever Fede says no, little mousey performs an action that demonstrates no (see the book picture). Don't worry, the story has a comforting si ending to the day filled with no.
