Tortillitas Para Mama and Other Nurseryrhymes
Young children will treasure this collection of Latin American nursery rhymes. Preserved through oral tradition, these rhymes have been passed on from generation to generation. They have been lovingly gathered and translated for this book and many are accompanied by instructions for finger play. Illuminated by the beautiful paintings of Barbara Cooney, they are now available for a whole new audience to enjoy.

"Highly useful in supporting early bilingual needs, this collection from Latin America has been preserved in the oral tradition. There are instructions for accompanying finger plays. Cooney's beautiful illustrations add much appeal."--"Childhood Education" "Each of the verses is child-tested, selected with care and thought...The book is a visual and aural treat."--"Parents' Choice" "A successful attempt to capture the often elusive authenticity of Hispanic subjects in children's picture books."--"The Horn Book"
