GORILA
por Anthony Browne
Como sucede en muchas familias, la niña
protagonista de Gorila, este cuento de Anthony
Browne, vive sola con su padre, o al menos es lo
que inferimos al no ver en las ilustraciones nada
que represente la presencia de otros habitantes
del hogar, menos de uno femenino que pudiese
sugerir la figura de la madre. El padre es un
personaje ocupado: trabaja todo el día y cuando
llega de vuelta a casa, continúa con su trabajo;
en las mañanas durante el desayuno, en vez de
conversar y compartir el tiempo con su hija, se
ocupa leyendo el periódico del día y luego sale
muy apurado rumbo a su trabajo. Y, como es de
suponer, los fines de semana está muy cansado
para poder hacer algo junto a su hija.

FIVE LITTLE MONKEYS
SITTING IN A TREE

Five little monkeys and their Mama
walk down to the river for a picnic
supper. While Mama takes a snooze,
the five little monkeys climb a tree.
Why? To te ase Mr. Crocodile! "Can't
catch me!" they shout, and Mr.
Crocodile opens his big mouth: SNAP!
Oh no! Now there are only four little
monkeys! A second little monkey
teases Mr. Crocodile, he snaps his
jaws, and that little monkey also
disappears-or seems to. The
mischievous monkeys are up to their
usual tricks in this second rhythmic
counting book about their
disappearances-and surprise
reappearances.

FIVE LITTLE MONKEYS
PLAY HIDE-AND-SEEK
por Christelow, Eileen
Mama’s out dancing, and Lulu, the
babysitter, is in charge. The Five Little
Monkeys are supposed to go to bed,
but they convince Lulu there’s time for
just one game of hide-and-seek first . .
. and then another, and another . . .
until they discover the ultimate hiding
place. Lulu is frantic; where can those
monkeys be?
Vibrant, expressive illustrations in
Eileen Christelow’s signature style
accompany a catchy rhymed text that’s
great for reading aloud. The refrain
invites children to join in; as Lulu
counts to 10, 24, and finally 104,
young listeners will count along with
her. And what little monkey can resist
the idea of mischief at bedtime?
FIVE LITTLE MONKEYS

little monkeys are bored. "There is
nothing to do!" they tell Mama. "Oh
yes, there is," says Mama. "Grandma
Bessie is coming for lunch, and the
house must be neat and clean." Wellmeaning as ever, the five little
monkeys clean their room and go on
to sweep the floors, scrub the
bathroom, and pick berries for dessert.
But then . . . Children will welcome the
return of the five little monkeys, who
make the same kinds of messes they
do.

TRUCAS
Juan Gedovius
A Trucas le encanta hacer travesuras
en las paginas en blanco del libro.
Cuando encuentra unos colores lo
pone todo patas para arriba. Y cuando
se topa con un lápiz... bueno, se lleva
una gran sorpresa. El truco de Trucas
es aparecer en un libro sin palabras e
inventar, contigo, una -o muchashistorias.
EL COCODRILO VA AL
DENTISTA
por Taro Gomi
A veces, hay cosas que no nos gusta
nada hacer. Pero debemos hacerlas.
Cuando un cocodrilo con una caries
debe visitar al dentista, ambos
intuyen, cada uno por sus propias
razones, que no será una visita ni
placentera ni sencilla. Y aunque ambos
piensan lo mismo, tienen que pasar
por un largo y doloroso encuentro que
le enseñará al cocodrilo que, cuando
se puede, hay que evitar las visitas que
no queremos hacer. Así, el célebre
ilustrador japonés construye una
historia que sirve para que padres e
hijos conversen sobre la importancia
de tener buenos hábitos dentales.

THE INCREDIBLE BOOK
EATING BOY
by Oliver Jeffers
Like many children, Henry loves books. But Henry
doesn’t like to read books, he likes to eat them. Big
books, picture books, reference books . . . if it has
pages, Henry chews them up and swallows (but red
ones are his favorite). And the more he eats, the
smarter he gets—he’s on his way to being the
smartest boy in the world! But one day he feels sick
to his stomach. And the information is so jumbled
up inside, he can’t digest it! Can Henry find a way to
enjoy books without using his teeth?
With a stunning new artistic style and a die-cut
surprise, Oliver Jeffers celebrates the joys of reading
in this charming and quirky picture book. It’s almost
good enough to eat.

HOW TO CATCH A STAR
by Oliver Jeffers
Once there was a boy, and that boy
loved stars very much. So much so that
he decided to catch one of his very
own. But how? Waiting for them to
grow tired from being up in the sky all
night doesn't work. Climbing to the
top of the tallest tree? No, not tall
enough. The boy has a rocket ship . . .
but it is made of paper and doesn't fly
well at all. Finally, just when the boy is
ready to give up, he learns that
sometimes things aren't where, or
what, we expect them to be.
First-time author/illustrator Oliver

reaching for the stars, and emerging

THE RAINBOW FISH
by Marcus Pfister
If you read this very popular book just before bed, and
the light is still on in the hallway, you can make the
rainbow scales glitter on the page, and realize why the
Rainbow Fish was so proud of his beautiful decoration.
Sometimes, though, being too proud of outside beauty
can blind a fish, or a child (or even, heaven forbid, a
parent) to the beauty people hold inside. That's the
lesson of this simple tale, imported from Switzerland.
It's a useful one for future sneaker and designer
clothing shoppers, for rainbow fish--and for quieter,
plainer minnows, too.

UNA NOCHE, UN GATO

LILIA
por Yvan Pommaux
En esta segunda aventura policial, John
Chatterton se ve envuelto en una
trama que hace pensar en otra historia

hijastar con cabellos negros como el
ébano, labios rojos como la sangre y la
piel blanca como el lirio... Sólo que en
esta versión es la madrasta quien
contrata la ayuda del gato detective.
¿Cuáles otras intrigas habrá tras de la
desaparición de Lilia?
SUEÑO INTERMINABLE
por Yvan Pommaux
Este cuento te puede sonar a uno que
te contaron cuando eras pequeño,
pero el ilustrador te hace una
propuesta desafiante. Crea un
escenario distinto y el cuento se
convierte en otro, aunque sigue siendo
el mismo. Ahora importa mucho lo que
ves y no sólo lo que sabes. Es un
cuento antiguo transformado a un
lenguaje del siglo XXI. Acepta el reto.
No es un libro para ver una sola vez,
permite muchas lecturas, porque hay
muchos detalles en este escenario.
Todo empezó en un café parisino que
se llamaba Grimm...

THE CAT IN THE HAT
by Seuss, Dr.
Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat replaced the Dick and Jane
basal readers in the late 1950s. Theodore Geisel, better
known as Dr. Seuss, was passionate about childhood
literacy, and he used his popularity as a platform for
raising awareness. Spaulding, a publishing company that
later worked with Dr. Seuss, took note of his work and
commissioned him to write stories that would appeal to
young readers. Spaulding identified 348 words that every
six-year old should know, and from that list, Dr. Seuss
wrote The Cat in the Hat (Wikipedia, 2011). The book is
comprised of 236 words, and 223 of those come from
Spaulding’s list of six-year old words (Wikipedia, 2011).
This book became popular with young readers because it
was easy to read, and the plot was exciting.

GREEN EGGS AND HAM
by Dr. Seuss
A character known as "Sam I Am"
pesters an unnamed character to taste
a bizarre-looking dish of green eggs
and ham. He declines, claiming to
dislike green eggs and ham. However,
the persistent Sam I Am will not cease
following him around and trying to
encourage him to try the green eggs
and ham, asking him if he will sample
the dish if he does it in various
locations (like a boat or a house) and
with an assortment of dining partners
(like a goat or a mouse). At the end,
the unnamed character gives in to Sam
I Am's pestering and takes a bite of
green eggs and ham, which he finds he
does indeed like.

So, let’s say it’s your turn to make dinner
tonight. What would you serve?
Would you make mac-n-cheese with extra
cheese, or are you more of a tacos kind of kid?
Would everybody get a bowl of ice cream, or
would you make a turkey dinner with potatoes
and stuffing? Maybe pizza is your favorite
dish, and you would make the biggest one you
could with all your favorite toppings.
Skippyjon Jones loves frijoles most of all, and
as you’ll see in the book “Skippyjon Jones: The
Great Bean Caper” by Judy Schachner, just
fixing a meal can be an adventure.

EL CASTILLO DE ROCA
TACAÑA
por Gerónimo Stilton
Tío Milordo, el ratón más tacaño de
Ratonia, me había invitado a su castillo
para asistir a la boda de su hijo Virgilio
con Cloaquita Pestoseta- Tufarada. El
castillo estaba rodeado de un foso
lleno de agua pestilente. <>, dijo
Trampita… ¿Quién es Geronimo
Stilton? ¡Soy yo! Soy un tipo
distraído, con la cabeza en las nubes...
Dirijo un periódico, pero mi verdadera
pasión es escribir. ¡Aquí en Ratonia, en
la Isla de los Ratones, todos mis libros
son unos bestsellers! Pero ¿cómo?,
¿no los conocéis? Son esas historias
cómicas, tan tiernas como un queso de
bola, tan gustosas como un gorgonzola
y tan entretenidas como contarle los
agujeros a una loncha de gruyer... En
definitiva, historias morrocotudas,
¡palabra de Geronimo Stilton!
LA CARRERA MAS LOCA DEL
MUNDO
por Gerónimo Stilton
Cuando Pinky le anunció a Geronimo

marca de patines Cuando te caes daño

augurio. ¿Patines cohete? ¿Qué
invento era ése? Pero Geronimo
pronto lo comprobaría en su propio
pelaje. Pinky lo había anotado en la
carrera más loca del mundo,
organizada por el nuevo patrocinador.
Vértigo, velocidad, riesgo y disparate
son algunas de las sensaciones que
experimentó Stilton en cada una de las
etapas, de las que salió,
accidentalmente, vencedor. ¡Con lo
bien que se estaba en casa!

ilustraciones y datos que permiten al

actividades y juegos que ayudan a
llevar a la práctica los temas del

EL MISTERIOSO CASO DE

peludos!
ES ASÍ
por Paloma Valdivia
La vida es así, no hay más vueltas que
darle. Unos vienen, otros se van. En este
àlbum no hay historia pero se cuenta
mucho, se habla de los que estamos, de
los que partieron, de los que estan por
venir...
Con unas ilustraciones esquemàticas,
pero amables, con mucha luz y alegría
que desdramatizan lo que realmente se
esta contando, la muerte se asume como
ciclo de la vida. Los que se van se
encuentran con los que viene y se desean
buen viaje. El texto juega con los verbos
"partir" y "llegar".
Se intenta sensibilizar a los más pequeños
(que siempre tienen muchas preguntas al
respecto) respecto de la muerte y,
también, a disfrutar mientras estemos
aquí. No nos queda otra que aceptar que
la vida es así.
EL CUENTO DEL PINGÜINO
por Antonio Ventura
“Cuando el pingüino se encontró ante

como tardaban en abrir, consultó su
reloj de cadena. Efectivamente, las
agujas marcaban las cinco en punto;
eso significaba que era la hora
adecuada, en punto.”

Por el bosque calcinado, sobre la

Alexander and the Terrible,
Horrible, No Good, Very Bad
Day
by Judith Viorst
From the moment he wakes up with
gum in his hair, things just do not go
Alexander's way. At breakfast,
Alexander's brothers Nick and Anthony
reach into their cereal boxes and pull
out amazing prizes, while all Alexander
ends up with is . . . cereal. The
situation does not get any better at
school, in fact it gets worse. No
wonder Alexander wants to move to
Australia! In Australia, everything is
upside down, so maybe a terrible,
horrible, no good, very bad day can
become a wonderful, terrific, really
good day.

No, David!
by David Shannon
Parents will be quick to jump to the
conclusion that there can be nothing
appealing in a tale of an ugly kid who
breaks things. And certainly--from that
adult perspective--there's something offputting about the illustrations of David,
with his potato head, feral eyes, and a
maniacal grin that exposes ferociously
pointed teeth. But 3- and 4-year-olds see
things differently, and will find his
relentless badness both funny and
liberating. "No, David," wails the off-stage
mother, as David reaches for the cookie
jar. "No! No! No!" as he makes a swamp
out of the bathroom. "Come back here,
David!" as he runs naked down the street.
