Miro / I Look

  • Interest Level: Preschool - Grade 2
  • Reading Level: Grade 1

On each spread of this delightful board book, vibrant illustrations of faces, animals, toys, and more gaze back at the reader.

Labels give the Spanish and English words for what we see—colors, shapes, eyes, ears, nose, hair—and there are more connections to find in every illustration pair.

Words and images are chosen to include the unexpected and imaginative alongside the obvious, making this more than just a first-words book. This is a bilingual book for adult reader and child to learn and explore together—to ask questions, point, and talk—or to enjoy quietly alone.
