    1. My wife got this book to use in her elementary school Spanish classes. She gets a lot of books for this purpose and I have seen my fair share of boring ones. This one is actually a really cool little bilingual alphabet book and the pictures are pretty awesome. Each letter features a different Mexican folk art animal carving. Some of the animals I have never heard of before, but maybe most kids are smarter than me. Overall the book is very well-designed and I would recommend it to anyone looking [...]

    2. This review was originally written for The Baby Bookworm. Visit us for new picture books reviews daily!Hello, friends! Our book today is the wonderfully educational ABeCedarios: Mexican Folk Art ABCs, written by Cynthia Weill and K.B. Basseches and featuring Mexican folk art from Oaxaca by Moisés and Armando Jiménez.On each vibrantly-colored page, little ones are introduced to a new letter; both English letters as well as letters and/or sounds (such as ñ or ch) that are native to the Spanish [...]

    3. All the animals in this alphabet book begin with the same letter in English as they do in Spanish. All pictures are of beautifully painted wooden animals hand crafted by a family in the state of Oaxaca Mexico. I found this to be a wonderfully creative and artistic way of teaching the alphabet through animals using both languages.

    4. ABeCedarios presents the beautiful wood sculptures typical of Oaxaca, Manuel Jiménez credited as the founder of this movement and his present-day ancestors who carry the torch featured at the end of the book. Great for any young reader interested in the ABC's, animals or art, esp. that of Mexican or Mexican-American culture.

    5. Oaxaca, Mexico, is justly famous for its brightly painted wooden animal sculpture. In ABeCedarios, the authors showcase the creations of the Jimenez family, using the form of a bilingual Spanish/English alphabet book. A happy read; and the animal sculptures are a wonderful inspiration for creating your own art.

    6. Gorgeous photographed Mexican folk art is paired with both the English and Spanish alphabet (including sounds like "rr" and "ll"). It's smart and beautiful. Would recommend for toddlers.

    7. Loved the folk art in this little ABC book. However, would someone explain to me what a "Nutria" and a "Zedonk" are? Are they mythological?
