Found this delightful book at the library with the two gals last week. Poems by Francisco X. Alarcon and lively illustrations by Maya Christina Gonzalez. I'll quote you one of the poems tomorrow!
I've been enjoying books of children's poems, and Miss A likes the rhythms--they help her remember the words and "read" along with me. For those of you out in San Fran--this is a local author for you! This book is bilingual too, for added enjoyment!
I am a mama, Certified Professional Midwife, dancer/choreographer, gardener, photographer-in-progress, collector, yogi, and lover of the quirky/wild/wierd/wonderful. Myself, two daughters, one dog, two rats, two hamsters, and an ever-changing number of fish reside in an old farmhouse on two limestone-ridden acres in the Hill Country of Central Texas.
My irrational obsessions include: bright blue borage flowers, embroidered pillows, tunics, vintage tablecloths, shoe lasts, rusted iron, my daughter's smile, and the sunshine on my face.
