The song of the rooster brings up the sun but in due course the night comes to continue the cycle.

Perseus Publishing
In this mythical poem from talented children's author Jorge Luján, it is the rooster who is the poet of the day. At dawn, his song draws forth the universe and gives way to the dance of beings and objects, all dreamily rendered in color by award-winning illustrator Manuel Monroy. This auspicious collaboration of author and illustrator results in a bilingual picture book at once simple enough to appeal to small children yet complex enough that adult readers can find joy in the verse and images over and over again.

The song of the rooster draws forth the universe and gives way to the dance of beings and objects as day draws its first brilliant breath. This book is so supremely simple that a baby can delight in it, and yet so complex that an adult reader can find joy in the poem and beautiful images over and over again. Jorge Luján dreamed this myth and, when he wrote it, understood that the rooster is the poet of the day. Manuel Monroy dipped his pen in the ink of the night and, when he withdrew it, found it was spangled with stars.

The poem in this delightful picture book is bilingual, printed in both English and Spanish.
