Reviews for Duck & Rabbit / Pato y Conejo ABC

Praise for Duck & Rabbit ABC military adventure / Pato y Conejo ABC aventura militar by Jennifer Sipos and Jennifer Rose Freeland, translated by Gabriella Aldeman

“This is an ABC book that is special in so many ways. It is perfect for families with military connections, depicting words such as ‘deployment,’ ‘overseas,’ and ‘navigation’ that are relevant to military life. Text includes both English and Spanish versions of each word. The art is beautiful and playful, in soft pastel colors and watercolor textures. Especially well-drawn are the details, including the ropes course elements on the cover, instrumentation of the cockpit of an aircraft, the back cover’s pile of packs, and so much more. Hidden letters appear in the art, cleverly placed. The main characters, Duck and Rabbit, are appealing and lovable, with just the right dose of humor in their antics. This bilingual book is a great introduction to basic military terms and is sure to win the hearts of young readers.”
Dow Phumiruk, retired pediatrician and award-winning author of Mela and the Elephant and illustrator of Counting on Katherine

“This book is a wonderful resource for families and others to use with young children who are navigating military life. The illustrations are magical, and will hold a child’s interest. The vocabulary is a great way to start discussions about feelings and life in the military. Thank you to the authors/illustrators for this great addition to any library.”
Kris Bivens, elementary school counselor

—¡somos una familia MILITAR y por ende me encantó el libro! Me senté con mi hija de siete años y mi hijo de cuatro años para leer/revisar Pato y Conejo ABC aventura militar de Jennifer Sipos y Jennifer Rose Freeland. ¡Miramos las fotos y nos detuvimos en los muchos dibujos que nos identificamos! Como la letra M, «mira mami, se están mudando como nosotros», o la letra E, «mira mami, hacen ejercicio como papá» o la letra P, etc. El libro está muy relacionado con nuestra familia. Los dibujos están llenos de pequeños detalles y también son muy bonitos los dibujos. Estoy segura de que mantendrán a todos los pequeños interesados en aprender su ABC.
