Estrellita se despide de su isla / Estrellita Says Good-bye to Her Island (English/Spanish)
Type of Product:
This lyrical book is Estrellita’s farewell song to her island home. The gentle words paint a picture of her beloved environment in vivid strokes, filled with images of, in Estrellita’s charmed words, the “little island / darling little piece of my heart!”
Estrellita’s beautiful tribute is framed by the window of the gigantic airplane that carries her away from her beloved world that will forever be imprinted in her mind. She tells of the rooster calling to her in the morning, the coquí appearing in her bed, and the people that populate her lovely countryside.
Estrellita’s song of her home gives readers aged 3 to 7 a peek at her world, introducing them to a love of the island and the love of a home. Estrellita gives a magical taste of her island, leaving the reader hungry for another read. 2002 8.9 x 11.2 32pp Ages 3-7
