Latin America has always been a full contributor to the rich poetic tradition of the Spanish language. Even before the arrival of the Spanish, the native peoples of Central and South America had a poetic idiom of their own. This bilingual anthology for young readers, containing sixty-four poems from nineteen countries, presents a fascinating mix of established and new poets. A significant portion of the book comes from the native community. Traditional pre-Colombian work is represented alongside that of young indigenous poets, who are writing some of the most exciting and fresh poetry in the Americas today. With beautiful black-and-white illustrations by Colombian illustrator Rafael Yockteng, the book provides an outstanding introduction to a rich poetic tradition and an engaging way for young readers to encounter poetry.

Claudia M. Lee is a noted writer, translator and SPanish-language editor. She lives in Bogota, Colombia.

Rafael Yockteng has illustrated a number of children's books, which have been published in Colombia and abroad. His images appear in Messengers of Rain / Mandaderos de la lluvia, an anthology of Latin American poetry, and Trees Are Hanging from the Sky / Los arboles estan colgando del cielo by Jorge Argueta. He lives in Bogotá, Colombia.
