Product description


"While a counting book in concept, Saenz's text is layered with multiple meanings ... Young readers will enjoy its structure, numbers and playful dreams, while more sophisticated readers and even adults will find reasons to return to it again and again." Kirkus Reviews, starred review "Valencia gives these visions an odd and wonderful dignity...Children who require stories with defined contours may find the flood of images off-putting; others will respond to Saenz's elemental warmth and rhythmic storytelling." Publisher's Weekly, starred review "Told with poetic text and colorful, full-page acrylic illustrations filled with surreal imagery, this is an attractive bilingual title. Particularly moving is the special connection between the old man and the child. Recommended for all libraries and bookstores." Criticas "The traditional artwork is a fitting complement to Saenz' folktale-like prose. Just like Regina, young readers will marvel at the beauty, richness, and unpredictable qualities of Octavio's dreams. Readers of all ages will appreciate the sincere affection between grandfather and grandchild in this intergenerational story. A perfect book for sharing aloud." ForeWord Magazine "This is a wonderful book for people of all ages; both parents and children will enjoy the creative story and beautiful illustrations." Oneota Reading Journal "A pleasant read that leaves the reader feeling as if they have just woken from their own peaceful afternoon slumber." El Paso Scene
