De colores, "bright with colors," is sung all over the Spanish-speaking world. People joyfully grab hands, sway, and sing the words that celebrate the beauty of spring and the strength of love. Caldecott Medal-winner David Diaz illustrates this bilingual folksong in vibrant color using acrylic, pencil, and colored pencil.

Diaz illustrates the first two verses of the familiar Spanish folk song “De Colores,” celebrating the arrival of spring in words and music infused with an all-encompassing spirit of community and joy. Each double-page spread illustrates one line of the lyrics, which appear in Spanish and in English. Piano music is appended along with a brief history of the song. Created in acrylic, pencil, and colored pencil, the fanciful artwork features people tumbling through the air and flying with the birds in the first verse and, in the second, cavorting with chicks that become nearly human-size. The characters’ simplified bodies, stylized faces, and clothing emblazoned with large hearts give them a look more archetypal than representational. Time and again, the forms of these figures echo shapes and colors in the natural world around them, underscoring their delight in the coming of spring. Created in surprisingly subdued colors, this picture book offers a fine, resonant representation of the song’s words and warmth. Preschool-Grade 3. --Carolyn Phelan
