    The perfect book for children who are just learning how to read, Señor Picante is my Red Fish by Lori Ries follows a red fish in his little round aquarium, looking at all the colors around him. From red to blue to purple too, the story takes readers through the rainbow and includes how to say each color in Spanish. Señor Picante explores his home on each page, hiding in his orange shell, waking up to the yellow sun, and more. A quick but informative and entertaining book, Señor Picante is my Red Fish is a great read.

    I took Spanish throughout high school, and I really like learning tools such as these to help me learn a bit of the language in a visual and fun way. The illustrations on every other page of this book were awesome to look at, and I enjoyed getting to follow Señor Picante around his little tank. I can imagine young children smiling brightly at the images throughout this book as they learn about colors. I would recommend Señor Picante is my Red Fish by Lori Ries not only to children who are just learning how to read but also to children who want to maybe start learning a little bit of Spanish. This book touches on the basics of colors and can be a great stepping stone to developing the language. This was a super great read and something that I would certainly collect a physical copy of someday to show to my own children.
