WINNER! 2007 Foreword Magazine Book of the Year Finalist, Children’s Picture Book (Spanish version)
On This Beautiful Island is a book that was ahead of its time! It’s hard to imagine that just a short while ago no one was listening to warnings about the global warming resulting from the cumulative neglect of Nature. Thankfully, now people are more conscientious about protecting the environment but few may realize that these concepts are nothing new. As this beautiful and timely book so vividly illustrates, the Taínos, a culture from centuries ago, already knew the importance of conserving nature.
On This Beautiful Island is a glorious book to enjoy and learn from, now more than ever! English, 32 pages, hardcover. Recommended for ages 6 and up.
Comes with an original theme song on CD!
Packaged with a bouncy and contagious theme song that will perk you up with the rousing sounds of Caribbean percussion, “En esta hermosa isla” is arranged as a plena, a Puerto Rican rhythm that reflects the mix of African music with the Caribbean sound. This original song was composed by Edwin Fontánez and performed by the immensely talented mezzo-soprano Anamer Castrello, accompanied by an enthusiastic choir of children. The result is truly charming and will certainly bring a smile to your face!
