In this joyful and spirited collection, award-winning poet Pat Mora and fine artist Enrique O. Sanchez celebrate the vivid landscape of the Southwest and the delightful rapport that children share with the natural world. Through language that resounds with the harmony of both English and Spanish, Confetti is also an anthem to the power of a child's imagination and pride. I say yo soy libre I am free free, free, free as confetti.
Long-awaited by the many fans of Ms.
Mora, Confetti is a treasury to be shared with children everywhere. Pat Mora, a popular presenter across the country at conferences, campuses, libraries, and schools, speaks and offers workshops on literacy, creativity, leadership, the writing process, and serving diverse populations.

Seven Creativity Practices for Educators and Students" are among her more popular themes. The author of award-winning books of nonfiction and poetry for adults and of many children's books, Pat received honorary doctorates in letters from North Carolina State University and SUNY Buffalo and is an honorary member of the American Library Association. The yearlong commitment to linking all children to books, languages, and cultures and of sharing what Pat calls "bookjoy," culminates in national celebrations in April.
Using Spanish and English, this collection of poems is as much fun to look at as it is to read. In "Colors Crackle, Colors Roar," Mora writes, "Gris whis-whis-whispers its kitten whispers" and "azul coo-coo-coo like pajaritos do.
Featuring an assortment of subjects, these short poems incorporate varying amounts of Spanish into the English text. Sanchez's illustrations, with castanets, a giant saguaro cactus, Tarahumara drums, pinatas, "egg-bursts of bright confetti," and more, are full of color and provide youngsters with strong links to the subjects and activities in the poems. A good choice for choral reading or for reading aloud.
