Staff Reviews


This bilingual alphabet book is filled with rich, warm illustrations. It takes you from the fields and orchards into the lives of the people who work them. Each letter from the Spanish alphabet has a short poem written around the word, and between the lovely poems and illustrations, it celebrates the people who work the land. I love it.

— Flannery

Description


In simple words and sun-drenched paintings, Alma Flor Ada and Simón Silva take us into the fields and orchards, and into the lives of the people who work them. Simple poems in Spanish and English, one for each letter of the Spanish alphabet, describe the wonder of the vegetable and fruit farms. Together, the poems and the rich illustrations celebrate the glory of nature and the hearts of all who dedicate their lives to working the land.
