Christmas Farm

Mary Lyn Ray

When Wilma decides her garden needs a new beginning, she gathers string, scissors, shovels, sixty-two dozen balsam seedlings, and Parker, her five-year-old neighbor. Year after year, Wilma and Parker nurture their trees, keeping careful count of how many they plant, how many perish, and how many grow to become fine, full Christmas trees. A cozy, holiday read-aloud and a lyrical way to usher in the month of December.

Arriba, Abajo y Alrededor

Kathrerine Ayres

Los pimientos crecen hacia arriba. Las papas crecen hacia abajo. Y alrededor, las calabazas se enredan, se enredan y se enredan. De semillas que caen al suelo hasta el maíz que parece reventar, ¡todo en este huerto está en movimiento!

“Poet Juan Felipe Herrera’s bilingual memoir paints a vivid picture of his migrant farmworker childhood. His rich, evocative prose re-creates the joy of eating under the open sky, celebrating at a fiesta with other farm families, and listening to his mother singing Mexican songs and his father calling the doves.

Las memorias bilingües del poeta Juan Felipe Herrerra pintan una imagen vívida de su infancia campesina. Su prosa profunda y evocadora recrea la alegría de comer bajo el cielo abierto, de celebrar una fiesta con otras familias de agricultores, y de escuchar a su madre cantando canciones mexicanas y su padre llamando a las palomas. “
