You're invited on a trip to a special place and there are many ways to get there. You could take a bike, a bus, or even a boat! The folk-art pieces were lovingly handmade by Oaxacan craftsmen Augustín Tinoco Cruz, Martín Melchor, Maximino Santiago, and Avelino Pérez—all of whom have longstanding relationships with Cynthia Weill. Vámonos will spark a lifelong love of languages and libraries in young readers. Grab your favorite person to read with and let's go!---from the publisher
