Gr 3-5-This is a thorough and engaging collection of 49 child-centered riddles, songs, jokes, and tongue twisters from throughout Latin America. For those who may have never heard one or any of the songs, it would have been nice to include the music (or at least a piano accompaniment), but given how strong and invaluable this collection is, this is a minor complaint. The simple b&w illustrations peppered throughout the book complement the text nicely. A surefire hit for libraries and bookstores.
