Carefully crafted for both Spanish and English audiences, this radiant bilingual collection (a follow-up to the highly successful De Colores and Diez Deditos) includes over twenty holiday songs and rhymes gathered from Spanish-speaking countries. The songs focus on holidays that specifically honor Latin American culture-Cinco de Mayo, Carnival, César Chávez Day-as well as on familiar fiestas celebrated around the world-New Year's, Christmas, Halloween, Mother's Day, and more.

With simple music for piano, voice, and guitar; informative background notes placing each song in context; Spanish and English lyrics presented side by side; and colorful collage illustrations, children of all ages will delight in this joyous new collection by the award-winning team of José-Luis Orozco and Elisa Kleven.
