Product Description
"A bailar! There's music in the park today - let's dance!" Marita and her mother are finishing their Saturday chores and anticipating Papi's salsa concert in the park, so Mami makes the broom her dance partner to show her daughter how to dance. "Listen to the claves, the bongos, and the cowbells… the maracas, the timbales, and the güiro, they will tell you how to move your shoulders, your hips, your feet." That afternoon, they put on their best dresses and dancing shoes and lead a parade of neighbors and friends dancing and singing their way to the concert. And at the park, Papi plays notes on his trombone that are a secret between him and Marita. Ortiz Cofer's lyrical bilingual text is complemented by Christina Ann Rodriguez's vibrant images of the neighborhood's unique characters reveling in the beat of the music.
