Description
"Before you were here, tu papi carved a mecedora from the wood of an old walnut tree so you and I could rock and cuddle together." The members of a familia lovingly prepare for a new bebé in this tenderly written story for readers 4 to 8, with Spanish words woven throughout. Mami is eating healthy food, Papi is building a rocking chair, Abuela is painting elefantes and tigres in the nursery, and tu hermano and tu hermana are helping with baby names.

"The English narrative is liberally seasoned with Spanish, introducing words for family members, colors, shapes, animals, and other terms.... Outlined with a bold black line, the illustrations bathe the family preparations in bright warm colors and provide plenty of clues to the Spanish vocabulary.... Similar to Eve Bunting's You Were Loved before You Were Born, and Anne Bowen's I Loved You before You Were Born, this adds a distinctly Latino flavor to the familiar theme."—Booklist
