In simple yet exquisite poetic text, a young girl asks the desert for things such as food and comfort and the desert responds, as a mother meeting a child's demands. Perfect for younger children and desert studies. Winner of the Skipping Stones Honor Award.

PreS-Gr 3 Piņata s new imprint Lorito Books pairs bilingual picture books with audio CDs. If this title is representative of the quality of the imprint, it augurs well. El desierto es mi madre combines a graceful prose poem with clear, simple watercolor illustrations to show the many moods of the desert. The CD presents the text in an expressive female voice, with the English read first and the Spanish after. The enunciation is crisp in both languages, and the pacing makes it easy to follow. Great for Spanish-speaking children who are learning English, as well as for younger children whose parents would like to expose them to Spanish. Recommended for public and school libraries. --Criticas Magazine, 7/15/08
