Paging through this book, you can practically HEAR the enchanting singing that is central to the story, which was wonderfully-written by Laura Lacamara and majestically illustrated by Yuyi Morales! ! ! I love the way the relationships develop, with the action centering around a mother of two young children, told from the point of view of a 7 year old girl. All the magic takes place on a Caribbean island, lush with forests and mango trees. You owe it to yourself and your family to pick up this treasure! ! ! !
