About the Author
Judith Ortiz Cofer was a critically acclaimed and widely published poet, novelist, and essayist who knew that "words have the power to transform you and give you the power to shape your life. The minute you open your mouth, you have introduced yourself." She wrote extensively about the experience of being Puerto Rican and her identity as a woman and writer in the U.S. She was the lauded Regents and Franklin Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Georgia where she taught literature and creative writing.

Reviews
"You can't help but tap your feet as you read this book The illustrations are as lively as the rhythm that urges you to move and the Spanish is so well woven into the story that bilingual readers don't even notice the shift from one language to the other." -- Mandy Cruz "Children's Literature"
"Cofer has crafted a delightful story, capturing the heart of the Latino community as it interweaves dance and life." -- Cristi Jenkins "School Library Journal"
