Review: Nino Wrestles the World

Take a look at a child's view of becoming a world champion lucha libre competitor! (A lucha libre competitor is a someone who participates in Mexican wrestling.) Nino dons a mask and wrestles against several pretend oppents until his little sisters awaken from their nap. Now who will win!?

Nino Wrestles the World is a picture book by Yuyi Morales.  A great diverse book is right here!

Adriana Sananes narrates Nino's tale. She wrestles with a mix of English words, Spanish words, and onomatopoeia words. It could be quite a tongue twister, but Sananes shares the story very well. The tempo is great! All the words can be heard with time to comprehend what is being said. I also enjoyed the music and crowd noise underneath the story. It brought the wrestling match to life.

Reviewed from a library copy.
