¡Pio Peep! Traditional Spanish Nursery Rhymes

Illustrated by Viví Escrivá

Published by HarperCollins, 2003
64 pages
ISBN: (0-688-16019-0)

Twenty-nine Spanish-language nursery rhymes that are familiar throughout the Americas are paired with English-language translations that delightfully capture the spirit of the original verse. The sometimes playful, sometimes soothing Spanish nursery rhymes they have thoughtfully selected will be familiar to many Spanish-speaking parents and children throughout north, central and Latin America, while Alice Schertle's lively, finely crafted English translations introduce these cultural touchstones to a whole new audience while underscoring universal aspects of childhood. Viví Escrivá's full-page watercolor art provides a pleasing accompaniment to each pairing, enriching the overall appeal of this welcome, inviting volume.
