MFOB FEATURED BOOK: Little Skeletons / Esqueletitos: Countdown to Midnight
The newest book in this series of bilingual nursery rhymes is perfect for Halloween! Little Skeletons / Esqueletitos is inspired by the traditional Latin American song Los Esqueletitos (Calaveras) Salen de la Tumba, with art in the style of the famous Mexican Calavera woodcut prints. Little Skeletons / Esqueletitos has a unique, interactive, accordion design that presents the Spanish version of the book in one direction and its English adaptation in the other. Children can sing the song straight through, move the hands of the clock, or shut off the lights to watch the little skeletons glow in the dark!
