Reviews

Warm illustrations with earth-toned backgrounds and more brightly dressed characters provide settings for this collection of 15 Spanish-language nursery rhymes. . . . A tender collection, most welcome for the home and perhaps also appropriate for some daycare or lapsit settings. -- Children's Reviewer "Kirkus Reviews"
In a gift to mothers everywhere, Delacre includes all of the best known lullabies from the Latino culturea veritable Latina Mother Goose. . . .The literal translations will make this book useful for bilingual literacy and for young English speakers trying to learn Spanish. -- Children's Reviewer "The Horn Book"
The short rhythmic compositions are accompanied by large watercolor illustrations showing Hispanic mothers and children. Warm colors and nurturing situations work well with the rhythms of the lullabies to produce a reassuring whole. -- Children's Reviewer "School Library Journal"
