Listen, Listen (Bilingual Children's Book) - Spanish/English
Author: Phillis Gershator
Illustrator: Alison Jay

This beautifully illustrated story explores the different seasons, and the amazing sights and sounds of nature.


In Listen, Listen, author Phillis Gershator takes you on a virtual “sensory walk” through the changing seasons. In summertime, we listen to the insects “chirp and churr, buzz and whirr,” while in other seasons we hear crunching of leaves and clomping of boots. Ms. Gershator makes good use of rhyming, alliteration, and onomatopoeic words, so the text is especially enjoyable to read aloud.

The fun phrases are paired with equally entertaining and beautiful pictures, chock-full of little details. In Listen, Listen, Alison Jay, who also illustrated I Took the Moon for a Walk and has authored other children’s books, continues with her signature folk-art style. Her use of crackle varnish over the paintings gives the charming illustrations an aged or “antique” appearance.

In the back of the book are four pages - each depicting the same scene in a different season – along with a listing of things or animals commonly found during that season (e.g., a goose, a rainbow). Little readers will enjoy finding each item in the picture. Note that the vocabulary on latter these pages is only in English.

2 of 5 Lovely Illustrations, Lovely Story, but... December 20, 2022
Reviewer: Donna S. from Buffalo, NY United States  
This is a beautifully illustrated book and a sweet story! We also purchased the Polish language version, and found inconsistencies, especially in the  vocabulary section which was only in English in the Polish version. The Spanish language book is smaller and does not have a fold-in reinforced cover. In both books the second language seems an afterthought and not visually well-integrated into the look of the book.

5 of 5 Love the artistry and written word! August 20, 2020
Reviewer: Lori M. from Imperial, MO United States  
Looking forward to reading this to the students at the school. The art work is beautiful and the book should make for fun entertainment for the little ones to learn how to express motion!
