Angels Ride Bikes and Other Fall Poems/Los Ángeles Andan en Bicileta y otros poemas de otoño
In this bilingual poetry audiobook, Francisco X. Alarc√≥n invites young listeners to experience fall in Los Angeles — the City of the Angels — where dreams can come true. In the poet's whimsical imagination, mariachis play like angels, angels ride bikes, and the earth dances the cha-cha-cha.
Alarc√≥n celebrates the simple joys and trials of everyday life: a visit to the outdoor market, the arrival of the ice cream vendor, the first day of school. He honors his family and pays tribute to his mother, who taught him that with hard work and education he could realize his dreams.
