- PreS-Gr. 3 When the tinkly bell sounds in the barrio, children race to the paleta wagon for the cool sweet Popsicle-like treat. Posing the title question, the poet suggests playful, far-fetched, thoughtful, and practical ideas, concluding “the very best thing to do with a paleta is to lick it, and slurp it, and sip it and munch it and gobble it all down.” Acrylic illustrations portray stylized doll-like human figures in a barrio that simmers in hot shades of orange, red, and yellow. In contrast, the cool paleta colors seem especially enticing. An appealing introduction to a yummy aspect of Latino culture. Pair this with the author’s earlier What Can You Do with a Rebozo? (2008) or with Yuyi Morales’ Just a Minute: A Trickster Tale and Counting Book (2003). -- Perkins, Linda (Reviewed 05-15-2009) (Booklist, vol 105, number 18, p47)
