The Secret Mountain
JUVENILE FICTION / Performing Arts / Music
An extraordinary collection featuring 19 traditional Latin American nursery rhymes and lullabies in Spanish that have withstood the test of time. Warm, colorful illustrations accompany this endearing repertoire of family-friendly songs from 17 different countries. Solid musicianship and lively vocal performances transport the young listener into a fanciful world of singing frogs and dancing skeletons! A map of Latin America and complete lyrics in Spanish with English translations appear at the end of the book, which also includes a CD and a code for digital download.

Mariana Ruiz Johnson received the Picture Book Compostela Prize for Mama, and Sleep Tight won the international Silent Book Contest at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair. Grupo Cántaro is a Mexican music-vocal ensemble founded in 1979. They have released seven albums of children's music, the most recent being Fábulas de Mi Granja.

"A really wonderful way to introduce children to music from many Latin American cultures and to get the whole family dancing." —Kirkus Reviews

"Selected for the column: '10 Buenas Lecturas' ('10 Best Reads') on page 47 in the September 2018 issue." —People En Espanol

"This would also be a wonderful gift for holiday time. You will enjoy spending time reading, learning and loving this little book." —Julia McMichael, San Francisco Review of Books
