about this item
“A beautiful, playful, child-centric approach to language learning—and if it spawns conversations about dialects, so much the better.”—Kirkus
“This interactive picture book is sure to be a young crowd-pleaser and storytime favorite.” —School Library Journal
Rubí Fuentes is the daughter and apprentice of a famous Oaxacan woodcarver. Oddly, she met Efraín Broa in Atlanta, GA, during a demonstration of her technique. They fell in love and returned to Oaxaca where she taught her new husband the art of carving. It took two years of patient work to fill these pages with vibrant, wildly imaginative figures of familiar animals.
