Tony Johnston creates moments of exciting activity and quiet contemplation in 18 poems that evoke some of the sights and sounds of Mexico. F. John Sierra's illustrations, which span each double-page spread, are washed with color and inflected with light; soft, warm depictions of each poetic scene. The poems appear in English and Spanish, and a glossary is included for some of the Spanish words. (Ages 5-8)
