    My favorite thing about this book is that includes both Spanish and English. The colors in the illustrations are very bright and engaging as well. The story follows a Mexican American boy who lives up in Los Angeles and takes you through things that are meaningful to him in Los Angeles. This book illustrates things like diversity within the family, aging, social diversity, and Hispanic culture.

This book illustrates things like diversity within the family, aging, social diversity, and Hispanic culture. I would use this in a 1st or 2nd grade classroom read aloud because it contains simple cognitive concepts like family and imagination, the personality is universal: valuing family and traditions, and it can would be great to read the poem in this book about the first day of school. Students would learn a lot about diversity and they would stay engaged with the different languages and bright illustrations.

    This is a book of poems told both in Spanish and English. They are told from the point of view of a Mexican American boy growing up in Los Angeles, California. His poems allow glimpses of what life is like in a predominantly Hispanic/Mexican community. You can see his family culture through the poems.

They can see how this writer tells small stories about different things, events, places, and people that were important to him as a child. Students can get ideas about what they might want to write a poem about and they can also see that poems do not necessarily have to rhyme. These poems are great examples of free verse poetry.

    Personal Reaction: I like this book of poems. It was an enjoyable read and children will enjoy the pictures as well as the stories. This book of poems has them printed in both English and Spanish and some of the English poems contain Spanish words. It's a great book to include in classrooms with both Spanish and English speakers. The poems fit together to tell a story of a boy and his family living in Los Angeles.

    This book of fall poems is a great resource for the beginning of the school year. There's a poem about how a boy feels on the first day of school as well as a poem about Day of the Dead. I already wrote up the "Books" poem on poster board to hang up in my classroom library. I will most definitely use the 2 poems about Los ángeles as we begin to study cities and Chicago in the winter/spring. The imagery and metaphors about pollution are very powerful and understandable for students in 3rd grade.

    This one was cute. It talks of this boys life in Southern California and it reminded me of my childhood there a little. Earthquakes- Palm trees dancing. Can't go out because of smog some days- I had forgotten about that. Like at Raging Waters some days you would have this big pain in your chest from running so much up and down the stairs to the slides. Too much smog in your lungs. It's a happy book though. Written poetry-like. has the Spanish version of the words next to the English. Pretty cute This one was cute.

    Same thing happened here with the white boxes, very annoying. This is also my first time reading books online, I never really liked the idea (there's something about paper pages that can't be replaced), and the problems I've been having so far with these books isn't really helping. I did really like the artwork in this book (also the previous one). I liked this one better than "From the bellybutton of the moon", mostly because of the way the author portrays death in a more positive way.

    The colors used in the illustrations are so vibrant. The illustrations tell a common story that we can all related to. I loved that this story was in Spanish and in English. Children can related to the poems in these stories. There was a story about the first day of school and being scared. No matter what language you speak, everyone can relate to that feeling. It would be great for English Language Learners to read this book, because of the use of both languages.

    Francisco Alarcon's book Los Angeles Andan en Bicicleta was a wonderful collection of poem that are related to each other. Alarcon uses his family members as inspiration for his poems. You learn that he lived in Los Angeles, the importance of his mother and grandmother in his life and the customs and celebrations his family participated in through his life. I enjoyed the poems Spanish versions and how the rhythm of the words came together.

    The book series seem to be talking about the author’s whole childhood and trying to explain what is the real Mexican life about. Above all, his grandma is getting older and older as if she is your real grandmother. Actually, I love these books a lot.

    I really liked how well illustrated this book is. The pictures are sometimes labeled in both English and Spanish which is nice for ELL students. I loved the poems in the book. They were easy and fun to read and it would be a good book to read to a class to promote poetry.

    كتاب شعر للأطفال باللغتين الإنجليزية والأسبانية لم يعجبني لكن بعض صفحاته لا بأس بها ما أزعجني حقا هو أن رسمة البطل أبدا ماتدل على أنه طفل صغير !

The book having both English and Spanish makes it appealing to students who use both languages everyday. It also illustrates to the students that one can express the same meaning in a different language. I would recommend this book because it could make a child fluent in Spanish, and learning English, feel more a part of the class and the class lesson. The teacher could use this book to teach students about poetry and the Spanish/English language. The teacher could further extend the discussion into a writing activity where students write their own poems in Spanish, English, or any other languages presented in the classroom.

    This is an entertaining collection of poems by Francisco Alarcon that depict his childhood in Los Angeles. While some of the poems have an autumn theme or timeframe, many do not. Still, the poems are short and very descriptive and are fun to read aloud. This is an entertaining collection of poems by Francisco Alarcon that depict his childhood in Los Angeles.
