    If there s one thing you can take to the bank after reading this book, it is that everything Skippyjon Jones learned about Mexico, he learned from watching Taco Bell commercials From the non sequitur rhymes that mutilate the spanish language, to the Chihuahuas preoccupation with beans, the boiled down rendition of Mexican culture is about as Mexican as cow entrails squeezed through ammonia is beef If the entirety of Schachner s creation wasinspired by the Taco Bell dog, I wouldn t be surprised The only thing that s missing from this book is a reference to Mountain Dew Baja Blast We can t hold Skippy completely accountable, however He s a sheltered young boy who can only rely on the shallow intimations of other species and cultures he finds in popular culture, to escape his dreary existence The fact that he spends his time with birds reveals to the audience that Skippy s condition necessitates escape His family lives on a steady diet of sardines and miracle whip Mangled toys lay in a broken heap by his toy box So he looks to the only inspiration to fuel his dream television Where else would he glean these warped notions of Mexican culture from When I read this book, I couldn t help but wonder if our protagonist was a byproduct of the author s ignorance, or of her brilliance On one hand, ...

    This is the worst kind of literature to expose your children to It s filled with stereotypes and fake accents It s sad that Judy Schachner doesn t know any better.

    Skippjon gets in trouble, sent to his room, thinks he s a chihuahua and all of a sudden he begins adding O to the end of his words to speak Spanish This book is seething in racism How have people not seen it and given it awards All the chihuahuas he meets have very stereotypical type names Making statements about rice and beans, because yes that s all Mexican people like to eat Then they have a fiesta and siesta while the chihuahuas carry around maracas and mariachi hats Come on I cannot imagine a person of Mexican descent liking this book, I m deeply offended by it Not to mention that the plot of story makes very little s...

    Okay, I m giving this five stars because I think it would make an absolutely outstanding read aloud book And I m not the only one it s won the EB White Read Aloud Book Award And also, this is the sort of book I would have loved as a kid who loved interesting words and sounds There are SO many fun fun fun things to say in this book p I won t give it away, but Skipyjon is just the beginning Plus, the pictures are fun, the cats are cute, and it has a lot of absurdity and adventure and imagination Also, I think bi lingual Spanish learners wo...

    While 1000 GoodReads members seem to disagree, to me this book is rather offensive It may have received the E B White Read Aloud award in 2004, but that doesn t mean it should be exempt from criticism The racial stereotypes are awful banditos really , the repeated reference to beans as if they are a defining characteristic of Latinos is insulting, and adding the letter o and...

    Children seem to enjoy this book much than myself They love the character of Skippyjon Jones a Siamese cat who thinks he is a Chihuahua I would agree that the play on words is worthwhile, but not at the expense of murdering the Spanish language No matter how much I try to lighten up about it, I believe it pokes a little to much fun at my cultural heritage I would use this book as a critical comp...

    What is there not to like about a young Siamese cat who likes to play pretend, especially when he likes to pretend to be a Chihuahua the Mexican dog of royalty As an American of Mexican ancestry, who happened to be born and grew up along the Texas Mexican border and currently resides in the same border town of El Paso , I didn t find it too difficult to step beyond the controversy and the lack of political correctness that many adult readers find in this children s book to see how witty, cute and funny Skippyjon s antics really are He is after all, just a kitten of a cat Sure there are stereotypes, but I didn t see them as being mean spirited or anything that a real child wouldn t be guilty of doing in the spirit of innocent pretending As a child, I might have created some of the same stereotypes Skippyjon did, especially in my speech I speak English, Texan, Spanish, and Spanglish very well and can change my manner of speaking my accent at will I didn t find Skippyjon s accent offensive He is trying to be a Chihuahua after all As they say, Imitation is a sincere form of flattery and idolization Skippyjon loves his Chihuahua alter ego and that is cool The only thing cooler ...

    This entire series is offensive and racist It uses mock spanish and peddles racist stereotypes as funny This is how racist stereotypes are taught to young children by presenting them as funny It s just not ok.
