Summary
A bilingual collection of humorous and serious poems about family, nature, and celebrations by a renowned Mexican American poet. Tomatoes laugh, chiles explode, and tortillas applaud the sun! With joy and tenderness, delight and sadness, Alarcon's poems honor the wonders of life and nature--welcoming the morning sun, remembering his grandmother's songs, paying tribute to children working in the fields, and sharing his dream of a world filled with gardens
