It’s not near as catchy in Spanish as it is in English. However, this is my son’s favorite book in English so to get it and read it in Spanish is a great way to help integrate Spanish into our bilingual household. It is a very good translation in Spanish, but only 4 stars because it is hard to compare to the very good and catchy rhyming and rhythm of the English version. Check it out!

El camioncito Azul (Little Blue Truck, Spanish Edition) (Spanish) Board book – April 2, 2013 by Alice Schertle (Author) Review
I am bilingual and really want my daughter to speak Spanish so I got this and a few other books for me to read to her and expose her to Spanish. She loves this little book and its a cute story. There are lots of little animal characters in this book so be prepared to quack like a duck or neigh like a horse lol. Also I like that this book is a board book with round edges which makes it baby safe (god knows they put everything in their mouth!!). You’ll enjoy this little book if you want to read to your child in Spanish : ) -Read Reviews-
So, the story is kind of nice–if you don’t think too much about its moral–but it’s poorly translated. I’m Spanish native speaker and a professor of Spanish and this book, like most of the bilingual books sold by Amazon, is horribly translated.
