Arrorró, mi niño

By Publishers Weekly

Lulu Delacre collects and illustrates comforting lullabies, in Spanish and English… The rhythmic poems — presented side by side in both languages — also offer a line of simple instructions for how to play games with each. The end of the book provides sheet music (with arrangements by Cecilia Esquival and Diana Sáez) so youngsters can sing along with the rhymes. Full-bleed spreads and panel illustrations convey many tender moments, such as the toddlers sleeping on luminous clouds set against a rich blue sky in “Lindo Angelitos” (“Lovely Little Angels”).
