EL VECINDARIO DE QUINITO/ QUINITO'S NEIGHBORHOOD

by | Read by Jonathan Davis

Spanish Audio • 5 min. • Unabridged • © 2007

En el barrio de Quinito toda la gente tiene un trabajo u otro y todo el mundo se conoce entre sí. En este audiolibro infantil en español conocemos a la gente de Quinito: su madre carpintera, su padre enfermero, su abuela camionera y su tía payasa. La gracia del libro proviene de su sencillez y la manera en que todos los miembros de la comunidad se relacionan. La lectura de Jonathan Davis está bien, pero sin los dibujos bonitos de José Ramirez, falta algo. Además, como la lectura va un poco rápido, los pequeños no podrán captar todos los matices y relaciones que existen en este vecindario tan simpático. Acompañado por una copia del libro con sus ilustraciones notables, esta narración, aunque sea rápida, sería más agradable para su audiencia de niños pequeños. J.A.G.

[ENGLISH TRANSLATION]--In Quinito's neighborhood, everyone has one job or another, and everybody knows everybody. In this Spanish-language audiobook for children we get to know Quinito's family and friends: his mother, the carpenter; his father, the nurse; his grandmother, the truck driver; and his aunt, the clown. The charm of this book lies in its simplicity and the way in which all of the members of the community relate to one another. Jonathan Davis's reading is very good, but without the wonderful drawings of Jose Ramirez something is missing. Also, the reading itself is rather fast, and young children will not be able to catch the nuances and relationships that exist in this friendly neighborhood. This narration, though quick, would be more enjoyable for its audience if accompanied by a hard copy of the book with its noteworthy illustrations. J.A.G., trans.
