'neath a button on the floor, floor, floor,

This heartwarming bilingual collection of traditional animal nursery rhymes from Spain, Latin America, and the United States will delight readers young and old. From the call of the rooster to the chirp, chirp of the cricket, these seventeen poems in both English and Spanish have been handpicked by distinguished authors Alma Flor Ada and F. Isabel Campoy, who have also included five of their own original poems in this anthology. English adaptations by Rosalma Zubizarreta adroitly capture the spirit of each cherished rhyme, and tender illustrations by award-winning artist VivÍ EscrivÁ will make the collection a family favorite for generations to come.
