Horn Book Review

When Anita's mom sings she floats in the air, and everyone who hears her floats as well. The neighbors complain, Mama stops singing, and then things go bad with the village animals. Anita discovers a secret about her grandmother that solves the problem. Morales's incandescent illustrations support Lacamara's lovely text, an exercise in Latin American magical realism for picture book readers. Copyright 2010 of The Horn Book, Inc.
