“Cuentos” paints a vivid picture of the people and rich cultures of the Spanish-speaking world. From the silly antics of the Puerto Rican anti-hero “Juan Bobo” to the mysterious powers of the Orishas in a suite of Afro-Cuban stories, these colorful tales are filled with memorable characters, fantastic plots and positive messages for children. Spanish language words are sprinkled throughout the stories and songs in such a way that young audiences can repeat and retain their sound and meaning. Quality entertainment and a great introduction to the marvelous world of Latino literature and culture.
