The Tree Is Older Than You Are: A Bilingual Gathering of Poems & Stories from Mexico with Paintings by Mexican Artists (English and Spanish Edition)


So begins this wondrous collection of poems and stories from Mexico.  Filled with all the beauty and wonder of this enchanted country, each poem invites us across the border as citizens of a shared world bringing with us only our opened hearts and opened minds. Imagine a car as sweet as strawberry ice cream, skin that kisses air and breeze-waving hair, a rabbit with little ears, a frog that runs instead of hops, and taxis filled with ghosts. Richly colored painting interspersed throughout express not just the meanings of words, but the magic within them.

So rub the leaves, Grab hold of the branches and don't let go.  Listen to these stories and new, fantastical worlds will unfold before your very eyes!
