Publishers Description Sleep, my little one, sleep My precious, La Morenita says sleep Let nothing disturb you and do not cry I've come to sing you a lullaby
In December of 1531, an Aztec man--revered as a spiritual seeker of truth--received a splendid and holy vision. As beautiful music played, the clouds parted and a woman emerged, surrounded by golden flames. Telling the man she was the Virgin Mother, she entrusted him with a special mission: to build a chapel in her honor. But, the Bishops wouldn't believe his story.until the Virgin sent a special sign. To this day, people throughout the world honor the Virgin of Guadalupe and celebrate her feast. In simple verse, perfect for the youngest child, the story of this special encounter unfolds, accompanied by richly colored illustrations and a lullaby to sing toddlers to sleep.
