By Pat Mora
Illustrated by Enrique O. Sanchez
In this joyful and spirited collection, award-winning poet Pat Mora and fine artist Enrique 0. Sanchez celebrate the vivid landscape of the Southwest and the delightful rapport that children share with the natural world. Through language resounding with both English and Spanish, Confetti is also an anthem to the power of a child's imagination and pride:
I say yo soy libre, I am free, free, free, free as confetti.
Long-awaited by Ms. Mora's many fans, Confetti is a treasury to be shared with children everywhere.
