Before you were here, tu papi carved a mecedora from the wood of an old walnut tree so you and I could rock and cuddle together.

The members of a familia lovingly prepare for a new bebé. A tenderly written story, with Spanish words woven throughout, tells readers how Mami is eating healthy food, Papi is building a rocking chair, Abuela is painting elefantes and tigres, in the nursery, and brother and sister are helping with baby names.

With its vibrant and warm illustrations, this debut picture book is perfect for expectant parents or children curious about the time before they were here.
