Alma Flor Ada is always wonderful, and this is enjoyable for all, but:

Especially for ESL classrooms that have primarily students whose first language is New World Spanish. To be paired with an almost identical book that is in Spanish. A large paperback with a stiff cover, suitable for reading like a Big Book with a small class or group.

Bright cheerful colors, short rhythmic focused verses relevant to young immigrants' happiest and most hopeful experiences. The verses didn't seem especially grace
