About the Author:

Jose-Luis Orozco is a bilingual children's performer, recording artist, and author who makes appearances nationwide. He lives in Los Angeles, California. 

Elisa Kleven grew up making dollhouses and collages out of doilies and postage stamps. Today, she is thrilled to carry on building her artistic dream worlds in the form of beautiful picture books. Elisa lives in Berkeley, California.

From Booklist:

Ages 2-8. Selected, arranged, and translated by popular Mexican performer and songwriter Orozco, this bilingual collection of Latin American folk songs for children is truly a musical treasure. Each of the 27 songs is presented with background notes; lyrics in both Spanish and English; simple arrangements for the voice, piano, and guitar; and suggestions for group sing-alongs and musical games. Gathered from Spanish-speaking countries but including two of Orozco's own songs, the compilation is a programming gold mine. Included are songs for special occasions ("La pi{¤}nata"), counting songs ("El chocolate"), and animal songs ("La ara{¤}na peque{¤}nita"--"The Eensy, Weensy Spider" in Spanish!). There is even a handy subject index to locate appropriate songs. The book is a delight for the eye as well as the ear. In the same shimmering style of magical folk art that she used to illustrate Arthur Dorros' Abuela (1991), Kleven provides bountiful illustrations--the endpapers are sunshine bright with a crisp quilt of yellow flowers, and playful borders that ripple with colorful patterns and miniature pictures line the edge of every page. Full-page scenes of Hispanic families and children and also animals are exuberant with activity and alive with the joy of music. Multicultural collections have been clamoring for books such as this, which works both as a well-crafted resource and a rich and resonant children's book. Annie Ayres
