Young Rita gets all kind of advice about salsa music from her family—how to play and sing it, how to dance to it, even how to dress for it! Learning about dance steps and musical instruments such as the güiro, piano, timbales, congas, and brass, Rita becomes so filled with enthusiasm that she dreams of someday becoming a salsa band director. In both English and Spanish, Salsa introduces young readers ages 3 to 7 to the delights of this rich music and the combination of African, Caribbean, and American cultures that created it.
With vibrant illustrations that capture the very essence, spirit, and rhythm of salsa, this captivating picture book literally dances in the reader's hands. Both children and adults will have trouble keeping their feet from tapping as they read this enchanting tale.
