Lulu Delacre collects and illustrates comforting lullabies, in Spanish and English, in Arrorro, Mi Nino: Latino Lullabies and Gentle Games. The rhythmic poems-presented side by side in both languages-also offer a line of simple instructions for how to play games with each. The end of the book provides sheet music (with arrangements by Cecilia Esquivel and Diana Saez) so youngsters can sing along with the rhymes. Full-bleed spreads and panel illustrations convey many tender moments, such as toddlers sleeping on luminous clouds set against a rich blue sky in ""Lindo Angelitos"" (""Lovely Little Angels"").
