From the Publisher

An award-winning author and a rising star artist have put a festive Latino twist on "The Twelve Days of Christmas," populating it with piñatas in place of partridges, plus burritos bailando (dancing donkeys), lunitas cantando (singing moons), and much more, all displayed in the most vivid colors imaginable. In this version a little girl receives gifts from a secret amiga, whose identity is a sweet surprise at the book's conclusion. There are things to find and count in Spanish on every page, with pronunciations provided right in the pictures and a glossary and music following the story. This joyous fiesta will warm even the coldest of hearts.

Illustrated by Maribel Suárez

From the Publisher

How many frogs fit in Danny's pockets? It's a jumping surprise!

¿Cuántas ranas caben en los bolsillos de Danny? ¡Es una sorpresa saltarina!

One frog hops on Tina's head,

Una rana brinca encima de la cabeza de Tina,

And another springs onto Mom's delicious cherry pie! Oh, no!

¡Y otra rana cae encima del delicioso pastel de cerezas que hizo Mamá! ¡Ay, no!

We don't want to eat frog pie!

¡No queremos comer pastel de ranas!

Wiggling Pockets
Los bolsillos saltarines

This bilingual book will appeal to anyone who's ever been unintentionally mischievous—just like Danny with his wiggling pockets full of frogs!

From the Publisher

There are so many things to be thankful for.

For one young boy, it’s 

 flying ladybugs, 

 splashing ocean waves, 

 a best friend, 

 Dad’s thick chocolate syrup, 

 and much more. 

Straight from the heart of a child flows this lighthearted bilingual celebration of family, friendship, and fun. Come share the joy, and think about all the things for which you can say, "¡Gracias! Thanks!"
