Illustrated by the author.
A celebration of the beauty of Puerto Rico presented through the eyes of a child, this is book that delights on every level. The exotically colorful illustrations are a feast for the eyes, and the lyrical text seems to echo the rhythm of the streams, the waves, the birds, the breeze all described. Intellectually, there are the elements of the Taino culture depicted in the drawings, and of course, there is the wonderful sensation of sharing something special with your child! This beautiful book will help you both to discover the lives of the Tainos and the valuable lessons their culture provides for us today - the importance of community, respect for nature and the value of friendship.
