A Magical Journey. . .

Little Ruben lived in a black-and-white world. He knew something was missing, but he didn't quite know what. That changes one day, when he fell right into a bright, beautiful world filled with all the colors of the rainbow. This whimsical story, told in two languages, makes a wonderful introduction to Spanish for young readers. Accompanied by an entertaining read-along audio track, readers of all ages can develop an ear for the rhythm and melody of the Spanish language, and learn the correct pronunciation. Ruben's Rainbow is the first title in a continuing series.

Written as a way for the author and illustrator to keep Spanish alive and vibrant in their own children's lives, Ruben's Rainbow has been used in classrooms across the United States to teach Spanish to English-speakers, and offered as a resource by the National Head Start Association to teach English to Spanish speakers. Ruben's Rainbow was a Fall 2001 BookSense '76 Pick, winner of the Latino Literary Hall of Fame Award for Best Bilingual Children's Book, and a finalist for the Benjamin Franklin Award.

"A warm and engaging story, artfully illustrated. . . a superb book to help children become bilingual. . . Highly recommended." -- Children's Bookwatch, December 2001

“A unique concept. . .The read-along CD’s background music enriches the reading.” -- Queens Parent, December 2001

“Aside from teaching kids language, the story sends a message that even small kids can improve the world around them.” -- El Nuevo Herald, Miami

“Delightful. . .encourages parents and children to read together. . .Beautifully illustrated. . .fills a need for educational materials for Hispanic children.” -- La Prensa, Riverside, CA

“The story and illustrations are magical. . . as good in English as in Spanish.” -- Vista magazine, December 2001

“The words are well-chosen, the art is well done. . . highly recommended for all ages interested in learning Spanish or English.” -- Fort Morgan Times, Colorado

“..well-suited for beginning Spanish-language programs. The simple texts make the meaning plain, the audio CD readings are appropriately paced.” -- School Library Journal

"Delightful! Perfect for parents to read aloud to their children...introduces kids to language in a fun way." -- Maria Perez-Brown, Creator and Executive Producer of "Taina" and "Gullah Gullah Island", Nickelodeon

"... an introductory work on color for children learning either English or Spanish, Ruben's adventures are well suited for ESL or beginning Spanish-language programs. The simple texts and the clear pictures make the meaning plain, and the enclosed CD, which presents the book first in English, then in Spanish, then alternately in both languages, will help reach those children who learn better orally. Both readings are appropriately paced, making it easy for young children to follow along."
