A song of frutas  Cover Image Book Book

A song of frutas / Margarita Engle ; illustrated by Sara Palacios.

Engle, Margarita, (author.). Palacios, Sara, (illustrator.).


When we visit mi abuelo, I help him sell frutas, singing the names of each fruitas we walk, our footsteps like drumbeats,our hands like maracas, shaking...The little girl loves visiting her grandfather in Cuba and singing his special songs to sell all kinds of fruit: mango, limón, naranja, piña, and more! Even when they're apart, grandfather and granddaughter can share rhymes between their countries like un abrazo-a hug-made of words carried on letters that soar across the distance like songbirds.
