About This Book

Packed with vibrant, full-color illustrations and a bilingual text that is rich in musicality and Latin-American culture, this book makes learning a playful experience for everyone. Given that these rhymes have been passed from generation to generation, this book can be used to talk about what young readers have been taught from their parents or grandparents, whether it is a song, story, or poem. Readers may want to also discuss nursery rhymes that they've learned, and share them with one another.

Besides being an excellent tool for introducing cultural oral traditions and different languages, this collection of lively Latin-American nursery rhymes will extend children's appreciation of different cultures. Accompanying finger play that encourages reader participation complements many of the rhymes, and adds to the fun.
