Tortillitas Para Mama
Duérmete mi niña
Duérmete mi sol,
De mi corazón.
Sleep, my child,
Sleep, my sun,
Sleep, my little piece
Of my heart.
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.

This book would be good for teaching ELLs because it offers text in both English and Spanish. These are nursey rhymes that show something special about their own culture. Read full review
Somebody bought my daughter this book when I was pregnant with her. My hispanic husband loves to read it to her. The book has nursery rhymes his mother used to read to him as a child. I think it is a wonderful book for bilingual children. I definately reccomend it.
