Come join the party as “Fiesta Babies dance two by two – the cha-cha-cha...and the choo-choo-choo!” Tafolla and Córdova (What Can You Do With a Rebozo) team up again to bring readers a book that will delight little eyes and ears. Babies and toddlers are sure to respond favorably to this short and festive rhyming romp of words, as they watch the colorfully dressed Fiesta Babies sing, dance, eat, and march on parade. Text and illustrations beautifully integrate Latino customs and culture, and introduce young children to a few Spanish words along the way. Highly Recommended.
