By beloved Hispanic Amercan songwriter, Jose Luis Orozco and Caldecott award winner David Diaz, this bilingual picture book is an integral part of Scholastic's Lee y Seras literacy campaign!
Written in both Spanish and English, a young child asks his parents to "sing to me, say letters to me, rhyme with me, count with me, read with me." Like Read To Your Bunny, Rin, Rin, Rin/Do, Re, Mi is a book that has two purposes--as a fun picture book and as advice for parents who want to give their children a foundation in literacy.
This book features lyrics and music by Jose-Luis Orozco, a beloved performer among Latino communities, as well as wonderful artwork by Caldecott artist David Diaz.
Lee Conmigo is the flagship book in Scholastic's literacy outreach program, Lee y Seras.

PreS–A well-known children's songwriter and a Caldecott medalist teamed up to produce this romping, rhyming picture book. The Spanish text is comprised of the lyrics to an Orozco song that encourages readers/listeners to find, identify, and count items and words in the illustrations. The English text, located below the Spanish, offers only a brief, pithy synopsis of the Spanish without attempting to reproduce the entire meaning. Perhaps this is because the full translations, offered in the final pages, leave much to be desired. What redeems this effort is the powerful, arresting art. Bold, black outlines attempt to rein in the energetic, smoky colors of each vibrant figure. Every page invites readers into a busy, crowded scene full of people, animals, and things–a raucous dinner table, a bustling street scene, a playroom full of toys, etc. Most readers will bypass the text in order to immerse themselves in the illustrations. Musical notation is included.
