A Review of GAZPACHO FOR NACHO by Tracey Kyle
Review by Lynne Marie and Kayla Michelle

by Tracey Kyle
Illustrated by Carolina Farias
Two Lions Publishing, 2014

From the cover on, this book just serves up fun!

So many succulent ingredients are thrown into this book.

RHYME -- The rhyme is very nicely done-  rhythmic, catchy and lots of fun!

CHARACTER - So many of us (or our children) will identify with little Nacho's picky eating and imaginative reasons for avoiding anything but gazpacho.

THEME -  Trying new things is always a rewarding theme and particularly inspiring here.

ART - The art sets the mood perfectly with just the right amount of ethnic flavor and is both sweet and fun.

WORD CHOICE -- the word choices in this book are absolutely delicious!

My daughter and I each read this book and absolutely LOVED the experience. We cannot wait to make the Gazpacho soup recipe.

Kayla noted that this is a great book for becoming familiar with Spanish words and culture. And she repeated that it is.....FUN TO READ!
