Editors Note PEPITA TALKS TWICE/Pepita habla dos veces is a charming story about a young girl who learns the value of being bilingual. A brightly illustrated, bilingual picture book, Pepita Talks Twice/Pepita habla dos veces depicts an active young girl's frustration at being stopped constantly to translate for neighbors, relatives and classmates. Her decision to stop speaking Spanish leads to problems she had not anticipated, including not being able to communicate with her beloved grandmother who speaks only Spanish and with her dog Lobo, who refuses to come to her when she calls him by his English name, Wolf. It is only when Lobo's life is in danger that she comes to fully appreciate the value of her bilingual skills. Pepita Talks Twice/Pepito habla dos veces will delight both English- and Spanish-speakers and give them insight into the value of speaking two languages. Both dialogue and illustrations are delightful in capturing the full flavor of biculturalism.
