In their final collection of seasonal poetry, poet Francisco X. Alarc n and artist Maya Christina Gonzalez invite us to celebrate winter--by the seashore, in the magic city of San Francisco, and in the ancient redwood forests of the Sierras. We see a city where people are bridges to each other and children sing poetry in two languages. A family frolic in the snow reminds the poet of the iguanas playing by his grandmother's house in Mexico. We are dazzled by the promise of seedling redwoods--like all children--destined to be the ancestors of tomorrow. Artist Maya Christina Gonzalez has once again created a spirited family of children and adults who swing their way through colorful pages. Collages of old maps of Mexico and California provide intriguing backgrounds, and fun-loving iguanas peek out at us from the most surprising places.
