Colorful, soothing oil paintings of a variety of young children and their families accompany the simple text. Children are shown primarily with their mothers, although some fathers and other community members do appear. A variety of Hispanic cultures are represented. The rhymes and games might appeal to very young children, but are probably too simple for older children, particularly if they are old enough to read for themselves. I wonder if the text works better in Spanish, since it seems to be a bit awkward in English. The addition of the notation for some of the lullabies at the back of the book is nice touch for parents who might actually want to try them out. While some of these rhymes read individually might be good nighttime read alouds, there's plenty of better multicultural poetry out there.
