Julie Vivas is one of my favourite illustrators and in Let's Eat she has teamed up with Ana Zamorano to create a gorgeous tale about Antonio and his family.
Every day at 2pm, Antonio and his family gather at the big wooden table his Papa made to eat their lunch. There are seven people in the family, soon to be eight as Antonio's mother is going to have a baby any day now. I loved the family mealtimes with Alicia asking a thousand questions and Salvador wriggling off his chair to hide under the table. This book is full of Spanish phrases and has a glossary at the back.
