El sol es de oro
la luna es de plata
y las estrellitas
son de hoja de lata.
The sun’s a gold medallion.
The moon’s a silver ball.
The little stars are only tin;
I love them best possible of all.
Here is a groundbreaking bilingual selection of traditional rhymes that celebrates childhood and Spanish and Latin American heritage. From playing dress as much as making tortillas, and from rising at morning time to falling asleep, these joyful rhymes are sure to delight young readers.
Passed down from generation to generation, the twenty-nine rhymes included have been lovingly selected by distinguished authors Alma Flor Ada and F. Isabel Campoy. English adaptations by Alice Schertle capture the spirit of each and every rhyme and have a charm all their very own. Accompanied by enchanting illustrations by Spanish artist Viví Escrivá, this collection is destined to grow to be a beloved classic for children already aware of the rhymes in addition to those encountering them for the first time.
