A moving bilingual ode to the unshakeable bond between a parent and child in the tradition of Runaway Bunny and The Wonderful Things You Will Be .
If I were a sheep, you would be a lamb.
If I were a bear, you would be a cub.
As a mother holds her toddler, they muse over the way their love would translate if they were different animals. But no matter how they change, they will always be “us.” This bilingual story is a timeless ode to the unshakable bond between parent and child.
Si yo fuera una oveja, tú serías un cordero.
Si yo fuera una osa, tú serías un osenzo.
Con su niño en brazos, una madre contempla cómo sería elamorentre ellos si fueran diferentes animales. Pero por mucho que cambien,no importa. Siempre serán“nosotros”. Este cuento bilingüe es una oda eterna al lazo irrompibleentre madre e hijo.

Thank you to Turn the Page Tours for having me as a part of the official blog tour for Nosotros Means Us by, Paloma Valdivia. I do have a little bit of a background learning the Spanish language, and my children have been taking Spanish at school since First Grade. So I decided to share the book with my kids to see what they thought.
Reading it together, everyone really enjoyed the beautiful illustrations. But what was really great was being able to share another language with my kids. They showed off their Spanish language skills by reading out loud to me.
Even if you aren’t studying Spanish, this book is really sweet to share with someone you love!
