Listen to the Desert / Oye al desierto

Listen to the Desert / Oye al desierto

by Pat Mora Illustrated by Francisco X. Mora

Listen to the desert. It speaks the languages of owl and toad and dove, of wind and rain and coyote. Pat Mora's simple, poetic text in English and Spanish visits the desert at nightfall, when many different voices are speaking. Young children who have Spanish as either their first or second language will delight in the repeated, rhythmic sounds of this fascinating habitat at night. Lively illustrations are rendered in the vibrant hues of the desert.
