Pío Peep!: Traditional Spanish Nursery Rhymes

Selected by Alma Flor Ada & F. Isabel Campoy, English Adaptations by Alice Schertle; Illustrated by Viví Escrivá

Similar to Merry Navidad! Christmas Carols in Spanish and English, Pio Peep! is a collection of nursery rhymes that originated in Spanish speaking countries. Just like Merry Navidad!, Pio Peep! contains English version of the nursery rhymes. To make the English version flow like poetry, the English poems are not a direct translation.

When the book was first published in 2003, the book did not include a cd. In the 2006 version, Pio Peep! includes a CD with 8 nursery rhymes from the book in both English and Spanish. The nursery rhymes, both in English and Spanish are sung with music like songs.
