A collection of original illustrated poetry for children in Spanish on the flora and fauna of Puerto Rico.

Hadas, Sirenas y Sapos: Un ramito de poemas encantados is a visually hypnotic voyage through enchanted landscapes and hideaways populated by fantastic creatures. Every character has its own voice, song, and message to share with readers willing to let their imaginations fly. This handful of original poems in Spanish accompanied by vividly illustrated images possesses a rhythmic cadence and will become a favorite of children and adults alike. Hadas, Sirenas y Sapos is a treasure to be appreciated, cherished, and shared.

Renowned Puerto Rican author Tina Casanova (Sambirón) calls the book "spectacular! The images leap from the pages and form fantastic worlds before the reader's eyes."

You'll enjoy sharing with the young ones in your life such poems as "Serenata de luciérnagas," "La canción del cuco (Tímido)," and "Mariposa de cristal." See below for a link to the poem "Sirenita" and a special video reading of "Azul" by the author himself.

This beautifully illustrated volume is a visual feast, original and refreshingly tender. Ideal for an introduction into rhythmic Spanish literature through a world filled with vibrant images, Hadas, Sirenas y Sapos exalts the tropical beauty of Puerto Rico. 32 pgs. Spanish. Recommended for ages 6 and up—$19.99
"Sirenita" by Edwin Fontanez

Brillante, entre las olas
una sirenita canta.
Vestida de oro y jade
con coronita de algas.

El mar sube, se levanta
se cansa y echa en la arena.
Y la sirenita ríe
brincando entre la marea.

El sol y el aire salado
pronto se cubren de estrellas.
La sirenita cansada
desaparece en la arena.

Adiós, sirenita adiós,
princesa de uvas playeras
que en tu castillo de corales
sueñes entre las almejas.
