Love Jen Arena This book is bursting with movement, music and family fun Nice rhythm for baby and toddler storytime, group or 1 on 1. Lovely Sweet and simple mixture of English and Spanish vocabulary and movement Recommended Baila Little baby s parents move and groove through bedtime, encouraging him to baila, canta, y mira Short and sweet, this story brings new dimension to the bedtime ritual of eat, change, sleep. While it might not make sense to play music and dance to encourage a little one to go to sleep, that s exactly what the couple in this lively picture book do Featuring illustrations created with watercolor and digital media, the book relies on rhyming bilingual text and lots of movement across the pages to tell the story Parents, child, and even the family dog dance happily to the various beats that fill the book s pages But all good things must come to an end, and eventually the pace slows, While it might not make sense to play music and dance to encourage a little one to go to sleep,
