This book contains 12 poems written by Lorca for children. Even if the child doesn't understand Spanish and some words or concepts are beyond his/her comprehension, the sonority of the language is so beautiful - with beautiful illustrations to match - that the child will be mesmerized (so the parents) as they hear her this poems. 

More details

Federico García Lorca was born into an educated family of small landowners in Fuente Vaqueros in 1898. In 1928 his Gipsy-Ballad Book (Romancero gitano) received much public acclaim. In 1929 he went to New York with Fernando de los Ríos and his volume of poems Poet in New York (Poeta en Nueva York) was published posthumously in 1940. On his return to republican Spain, he devoted himself to the theatre, as co-director of La Barraca, a government-sponsored student theatrical company that toured the country. He now wrote fewer poems, but these include his masterpiece Lament for Ignacio Sánchez Mejías (Llanto por la muerte de Ignacio Sánchez Mejías, 1935), a lament for a dead bullfighter. He wrote classical plays, pantomimic interludes, puppet plays, La zapatera prodigiosa (1930) and three tragedies: Blood Wedding (Bodas de sangre, 1933), Yerma (1934) and The House of Bernarda Alba (La casa de Bernarda Alba, 1936). Just after the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War in 1936 he was murdered at Granada by Nationalist partisans, in mysterious circumstances.

Gabriel  Pacheco is a remarkable Mexican illustrator. He became a published artist after his sister asked him to illustrate a story. Fortunately, Pacheco continued to explore his native talent and created a splendid portfolio of illustrations for children books, poetry volumes and fantastic literature.
