Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sylvia Firth
This award winning title is written in both Spanish and English. It is designed for use with very young children at playtime or bedtime. According to the introduction, fourteen different Latina cultures are represented. At the end of the book, eleven of the songs are printed with musical arrangements so that parents may sing them to their children. The lovely oil washed illustrations are a wonderful addition to the book. The deep love between adults (mostly mothers) and their children is beautifully portrayed. Especially striking is the picture that accompanies the melody entitled, "Moon, Gentle Moon." It depicts parents in a museum viewing a Van Gogh painting. An address to acquire a companion CD is provided. Latino parents living in the United States are certain to find this book a delightful way to pass on their traditions to their children, while others will find it useful for introducing Latino culture to their youngsters. Definitely place this title on the recommended list as it sure to be widely used. Reviewer: Sylvia Firth
