El BarrioBook - 2009
Join a young boy as he explores his vibrant neighborhood. The city shimmers with life--at once a party, a waltz, and a heartbeat. El Barrio is his sister preparing for her quinceañera , his grandfather singing about the past, and his cousins' stories from other lands. The city is alive with the rhythms of the street.
Told in lyrical language and through bold, colorful illustrations, this celebration of Hispanic culture and urban life is sure to fire children's curiosity about where they live and what they can discover in their own neighborhoods.
