The beautiful illustrations support the text perfectly, giving important clues for readers to unlock the graceful language. If you are studying the desert, no matter what age, I highly recommend this book. If you are a parent who loves to read with your child this is a must have and if you are a bi-lingual Spanish-English parent, lucky is the child to have your two voices to bring this book to life.

The Desert is My Mother/El desierto es mi madre
A bi-lingual "early reader" for young children. Good for basic Spanish comprehension. Feb 11, Julie marked it as to-read Recommended to Julie by: A bilingual text gives us a little girl who feels affinity for the desert in which she lives. The text is playful but contain's a lot of information about desert life and phenomena.
