Christmas is celebrated with this traditional collection of holiday music in Spanish. These joyful songs express the traditions of the holiday and its cultural importance throughout Latin America and other Spanish speaking countries.
Semi-abstract illustrations use bold lines and strong color to accompany and enhance the inviting text that encourages participation both in Spanish and English. Readers are invited to count, find words, and perhaps even sing (music is included) in this winning combination of words and images.
