ABeCedarios: Mexican Folk Art ABCs in English and Spanish by Cynthia Weill

“Featuring vibrant wooden sculptures by a Oaxacan family of artists…The highly saturated color backdrops and stunning sculptures win over readers of all ages.”— Publishers Weekly

“An outstanding alphabet book.”— Críticas

“[A] colorful and inventive way for teaching a young child their ABCs. Highly recommended; even adults will enjoy lingering over the unique animal artistry.”— Midwest Book Review

Brothers Moisés and Armando Jiménez carved the wonderful animal figures that illustrate each letter in ABeCedarios . Working with their wives and children, they meticulously hand-paint each enchanting animal. The Jiménez families live and work in the beautiful mountain village of Arrazola, Oaxaca.
