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. "
