The dual English/Spanish text is augmented by summery scenes in opaque, rich colors.
The artwork is as refreshing and colorful as pitchers of aguas frescas themselves. When Alicia first tries the drink, her face radiates delight. The antics of the family dog provide additional humor and action. Both Spanish and English text are well laid out on the page, integrating storyline, font and illustrations. This charming book celebrates community, healthful lifestyle and cultural cross currents. Ideally suited for an outreach program, summer story time or read aloud. Recommended for school and public libraries.
