A bilingual collection of songs and rhymes that have accompanying hand and body motions.In this, his second collection of musical material from the Spanish-speaking countries, Jose-Luis Orozco brings together over thirty finger rhymes, play rhymes, and action songs and games for children of various ages to enjoy in Spanish and English.Crafted in a similar format as the appealing, successful De Colores and Other Latin-American Folk Songs for Children, Diez Deditos contains simple music for piano, voice, and guitar; informative background notes placing each song in context; and Spanish and English lyrics presented side by side. As well, words and diagrams show readers the appropriate motions for fingers, hands, face, or body to make. Children will delight in acting out the hand movements to songs like Pimpon Pimpon, about a puppet who can wash his face and hands and comb his hair; or Las Horas, where children move their arms like the hands of a clock; or Que Llueva, where hand gestures are used to imitate rain falling, clouds rising, and birds singing; or a host of others.Joyfully illustrated with Elisa Kleven's colorful collage paintings, the folk-art-like pictures capture the playful, celebratory mood of the selected songs. With its vibrant, detailed artwork and child-pleasing songs, this multicultural book invites readers to learn and share, and sing and act out. It will keep children entertained for years to come. Jose-Luis Orozco selected, arranged, and translated De Colores and Other Latin-American FolkSongs for Children (Dutton). He is a songwriter, a recording artist, and a specialist in multicultural education . Elisa Kleven is the acclaimed illustrator of many books, including De Colores; Abuela and Isla by Arthur Dorros; and her own The Paper Princess (all Dutton).

Jose-Luis Orozco is a bilingual children's performer, recording artist, and author who makes appearances nationwide. He lives in Los Angeles, California.
Elisa Kleven grew up making dollhouses and collages out of doilies and postage stamps. Today, she is thrilled to carry on building her artistic dream worlds in the form of beautiful picture books. Elisa lives in Berkeley, California.
Ages 2-8. The dynamic team that brought readers the popular De Colores (1994) is back with lively finger rhymes and more exuberant songs from Latin America. This new collection will be as treasured as the first book and just as well used. Adults working with children will find many instructional possibilities and curricular connections, and there are ample opportunities to get kids clapping, giggling, wiggling, tickling, and much more. The 34 selections are developmentally appropriate for younger children, but some can also be used with older students. Kleven's rich and vibrant collage illustrations are again wonderfully engaging. This time, she has added visual prompts to cue children to the appropriate body movements for accompanying the songs and rhymes. There are no source notes, but explanatory notes precede each selection, and there's a useful subject index. English translations have been made keeping rhythm and rhyme more in mind than the literal meaning in Spanish. Karen Morgan
