The Barking Mouse: Antonio Sacre This story is so cute, lovely and funny. Actually, I felt bad before reading this story due to my personal money issue. However, as soon as I just read a half page, I started laughing aloud. The storyteller used Spanish and English to contain both cultures.

Mamá, Papá, Sister, and Brother Ratón go for a picnic on a beautiful day. After a delicious lunch, Mamá and Papá smooch--eeewww!--and Brother and Sister must find something to do. And what could be more fun than teasing the cat behind the fence?

Great book and message, very funny--kids LOVE it. A great book to read to English Language Learners as it celebrates knowing multiple languages.

This book is really cute, and has a cute message. I actually went to a book reading/talk with the author, and didn't have money with me to get the book that day, so bought it on here as soon as I get home. His other books are equally as good.

My 6mth old niece is already an engaged reader! She's being raised in a joyful bi-lingual, multi-generational household in the American MidWest, where the musical sounds of Spanish, English, and Spanglish weave together 3 generations. Antonio Sacre's children's books The Barking Mouse & A Mango in the Hand are a big hit with Baby Sophia and the Whole Family!

My 4 year old absolutely loves this book, I like the moral behind it.
very recommended, we read it again and again and again.
When I reach the part where the mouse barks, I have to stop and she reads it OUT LOUD!

One of my favorite stories!! My grade K, 1, and 2 students loved this tale!!! I would highly recommend it.

A great addition for households where kids speak Spanish or are trying to learn Spanish. Some of the Spanish is translated in the text while some is listed in a glossary at the beginning. Text is primarily in English and is not hard for adult English-only speakers to read.

Children enjoy the twist at the end where the Mama mouse saves her family from the cat by barking like a dog. A subtle way to convey to kids the importance of knowing another language.

The best children's response of any book that I've read to my elementary bilingual students. AND the English only speakers love it, too, as do the teachers. This needs to be on every parent's, teacher's, and storyteller's bookshelf. Not only entertaining but the inclusive message is one that paves the way for a new society with cooperation among all the peoples of the Americas.
This is a hilarious retelling of a Cuban folk tale, which is also told in Uruguay and probably in other countries. It's prefaced by an author's note telling about his boyhood as the child of Cuban immigrants, and how his grandmother, on learning that he'd abandoned Spanish as a teen, "got so mad threw food at me until I learned it again."

The simple story, brightly illustrated, is of a cheerfully affectionate family who goes on a picnic. Due to the rather foolish antagonism of the children, a cat comes to threaten the excursion and attempts to eat the mice. The action comes to a climax when the cat is about to eat the entire family, and is resolved (I won't quite spoil the ending) when one of them threatens the cat in an unusual way.

The book is lightly salted with Spanish phrases (a brief glossary is helpfully provided.) It is a lighthearted yet sincere tribute to bilingualism, and the family's unity and affection (notwithstanding the cowardice of certain members in hiding behind Mother) is delicious.
