comment How might you say a child is “cute” in Spanish?
Roughly the same in Argentina ("rico" is seldom used; "mono" practically never). I don't think there an exact translation of "cute", with all the current connotations of the word (as in the "cute vs cool" alternative, etc).

comment Why does “mostrar a” mean “to show” and not “to show to”?
To clarify the (apt) example: "la biblioteca" is indirect object; "el libro/María" are direct objects (impersonal and personal resp.) BTW: "el Padre" is a person - just not a human person.
