Mami starts a salsa song.
Papi keeps the beat.
Baby loves this lullaby,
moves those dancing feet.
Baila, baby, baila!
Dance, dance, dance.
When nighttime falls, it's time for baby to go to sleep. In this household, that means it's also time for mama, papa, and baby to baila/dance, canta/sing, salta/jump, and more all the way to bedtime!
This bouncy bilingual text and gorgeous, inviting illustrations gently wind down to make this a bedtime favorite no matter what language families say "good night" in!
About the Author
Erika Meza creates utopias and detailed dreams strongly influenced by her enthusiasm for color, her fascination for animation, and the nostalgia of children's books. Her themes are born out of the exploration of her migrant essence, her bittersweet relationship with change, and her attachment to innocence and curiosity. After living in Paris for four years, she is now in the U.K. having fun as a drawing lecturer at NTU in decorative arts. Learn more about Erika at ErikaMeza.com or on Twitter at @ErikaDraws.
