From dawn till dusk, Quinito’s life is full of opposites. In the morning, he’s up and running — fast or slowly, depending on the day. If it’s sunny, he’s off to the park to swing high and low. If it’s a rainy, stay-at-home day, Quinito’s quiet at naptime and noisy at playtime. So much to do before the sun sets! This playful story builds awareness in young readers that everywhere they look, opposites abound. Told in both English and Spanish, Quinito, Day and Night is a delight for readers young or old, tall or short, messy or neat.

K-Gr 2

This sequel to Quinito's Neighborhood(Children's Book Press, 2005) is a clever book of opposites. Beginning with his family's wake-up habits, Quinito notes that while his baby sister gets up early and his older brother gets up late, he wakes up at "just the right time." And so, he goes on to compare short and tall, young and old, neat and messy, rainy and sunny, sad and happy, fast and slow, up and down, high and low, quiet and loud, long and short, left and right, night and day, and awake and asleep. The deceptively simple text manages not only to compare the words, but to paint a re-assuring portrait of a happy child in a loving and supportive family. The few points of conflict, such as a group of noisy boys playing next to a sleeping baby, only serve to give the narrative verisimilitude. Ramirez's deep-hued oil-on-canvas primitive artwork has a childlike directness combined with a near flawless sense of composition and weighting. His paintings are a pleasure to look at-and warrant repeated perusal. Young listeners will be drawn in by the charm of the confident young narrator and the complementary illustrations. An excellent introduction or reinforcement of the concept of opposites, this is also just a good family story.-Ann Welton, Grant Center for the Expressive Arts, Tacoma, WA
