Staff Reviews


 From the ¡Vamos! series comes !Vamos! Let's Cross the Bridge!, a spectacle to see and read! Two cities in different countries are connected by a bridge. People cross the bridge every day “for work, to visit family, or for play.” When traffic stops completely, a party breaks out to pass the time.  A beautiful bilingual celebration of culture and the bridge that connects two countries. I find something new in the drawings everytime I read this one!

Description


Winner of the Pura Belpré Medal! A New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book!

Little Lobo and Bernabé return in ¡Vamos! Let’s Cross the Bridge, a joyful paper-over-board picture book follow-up to ¡Vamos! Let’s Go Eat about coming together and celebrating community from New York Times bestselling, three-time Pura Belpré Awardwinning author-illustrator Raúl the Third.

People are always crossing the bridge for work, to visit family, or for play. Some going this way; others going that way. Back and forth they go. With friends on foot and in bicycles, in cars and trucks, the bridge is an incredibly busy place with many different types of vehicles.

Little Lobo and his dog Bernabé have a new truck and they are using it to carry party supplies over the bridge with their pals El Toro and La Oink Oink. The line is long and everyone on the bridge is stuck. How will they pass the time?
