Description - Mi Primer Libro de Dichos/My First Book Of Proverbs by Ralfka Gonzalez
This bilingual book is the perfect introduction for young children to well-loved proverbs in English and Spanish. In this playful collection of popular Mexican dichos, or proverbs, artists Ralfka Gonzalez and Ana Ruiz bring to life their most favorite sayings--recorded in their travels throughout Mexico and the United States. Filled with wisdom and optimism, these dichos are a joyous celebration of life and culture; reminding us to -pig out while you have the chance;- that -after the rain comes the sun;- and to -sing every day and chase the mean blues away.- Ralfka and Ana's exuberant illustrations vividly capture the mood and essence of each dicho. With stunning color and folk art flavor, their paintings draw us into a whimsical world where bumble bees play bongo drums and roosters sing all day. Sandra Cisneros provided the introduction to this joyous collection.
