One Is a Pinata: A Book of Numbers Following Thong's previous books on colours (Green is a Chile Pepper) and shapes, (Round is a Tortilla) and again using Parra's wonderful nave folk art style illustration, numbers from one to ten are introduced in both Spanish and English by Hispanic children in a variety of festive and or family settings. The text, in rhyming quatrains, is lively and engaging, using occasional Spanish words (explained in a glossary at the end of the book along with phonetic pronunciation ): 'Eight are the frutas/ we eat on a stick /with chili and lime juice/ come take your pick'. It is a pity the glossary does not also include pronunciation help for the numbers in Spanish.
