Kids Book Review- Just in Case by Yuyi Morales

I do my best to read to my kids every night.  We make weekly trips to the library so that we always have something new to read. But once in a while we find a book that we like to read over and over again. Anything by Yuyi Morales always seems to be in rotation. All her books are fun and beautiful but our favorite is:

Just in Case: A Trickster Tale and Spanish Alphabet Book

This is the story of Señor Calavera. He is attending a birthday party for Grandma Beetle and Señor Calavera is at his wits end trying to find the perfect gift. With the help of Señor Zelmiro he goes through the entire Spanish alphabet collecting gifts for Grandma Beetle.

In the end Señor Calavera brings the best gift Grandma Beetle could ask for.

My kids really love this book. It has bright and colorful illustrations and the story is silly and whimsical as well as educational and bilingual. Basically it hits all the marks we are looking for in a book.

What books are you reading to your kids over and over and over again?
