When the hilarious Jimmy Fallon and the multifaceted Jennifer Lopez team up to write a children’s book, you know it’s going to be great – and this one just happens to be in two languages! It’s called Con Pollo: A Bilingual Game Adventure
and it features an adorably playful little chicken named Pollo. The publisher hails it as “an engaging and hilarious picture book that serves young readers as an introduction to basic Spanish vocabulary, brought to life by superstar crew Jimmy Fallon and Jennifer Lopez”. It is perfect for children from 2 to 5 years old.
With simple, colorful images by Latina artist Andrea Campos, it helps teach your little one Spanish in a fun, easy-to-remember way. Why would you do something alone when you could do it with Pollo: “Do you want to go dancing? WHERE bailar con Pollo?“Do you want to fly?” WHERE fly with Pollo?“
This isn’t Jimmy Fallon’s first rodeo of creating children’s books – he’s written four other books in addition to this one (Your baby’s first word will be DADA, everything is mommy, Nana loves you more, and 5 No More Sleeps Until Christmas
) who have become New York Times bestsellers. Given that With Pollo is available for pre-order and is already one of Amazon’s #1 bestsellers, we’d say it’s also on the fast track to super-popularity. And while this is Jennifer Lopez’s first children’s book, we all know that everything she touches turns to gold these days…because, well, J-Lo.
“I’m so excited to launch my first children’s book and it’s even more special to collaborate with Jimmy!” Lopez said People in February. Fallon was also excited and hoped his collaboration with J-Lo would earn him some sweet spots in the eyes of his former Spanish teachers: “It’s fun and educational and my high school Spanish teachers would be so impressed to know that I I teach children to speak Spanish with Jennifer Lopez. He added that since the two were both parents, they thought a children’s book was a natural choice. “One of the many things I love about her is what an awesome mom she is,” he said.
