Debajo de un botón, ton ton,
que encontró Martín, tin, tin
había un ratón, ton, ton,
ay, que chiquitín, tin, tin!

Martin found a mouse, mouse, mouse,
'neath a button on the floor, floor, floor,
in a tiny house, house, house,
with a tiny door, door, door.

This heartwarming bilingual collection of traditional animal nursery rhymes from Spain, Latin America, and the United States will delight readers young and old. From the call of the rooster to the chirp, chirp of the cricket, these seventeen poems in both English and Spanish have been handpicked by distinguished authors Alma Flor Ada and F. Isabel Campoy, who have also included five of their own original poems in this anthology. English adaptations by Rosalma Zubizarreta adroitly capture the spirit of each cherished rhyme, and tender illustrations by award-winning artist Viví Escrivá will make the collection a family favorite for generations to come.

Editorial Reviews

?Rather than a verbatim translation of the Spanish, the English versions retain the rhythm and musicality of the originals....In addition to being a perfect resource for bilingual programs, this book will be enjoyed as a bedtime read-aloud.?-Rebecca Hickman, Nova Southeastern University, Fort Lauderdale, FL (School Library Journal)
