Staff Reviews

One of our Children's Books Department staff's new favorite board books, and a great book to read after Goodnight Moon.


"It's hard to take one's eyes off this book, the wood sculptures are so appealing, so re-readings are probable."--Chicago Tribune

"Direct and charming."-- Publishers Weekly

"This second work by the author of ABeCedarios follows its predecessor's highly praised concept and design."-- Kirkus

Brothers Martin and Quirino, along with other family members, carved these figures from the wood of the flowering jacaranda tree. All are farmers but supplement their income carving these beautiful creatures in the little mountain town of La Union Tejalapam, Oaxaca.
