"Cocorina is a delightful character, and a sympathetic one as well. The Spanish text is perfect for a read-aloud, with a nice rhythm and rhyme structure. It's the illustrations that really steal the show here-all the characters have tremendous personality, but most of all Cocorina." --"Library Journal "(May 2011)
