Hardcover

From Pura Belpre honoree Angela Dominguez, I Love You Baby Burito is a modern classic picture book celebrating the act of swaddling a newborn into a "baby burrito."

¡Hola, bebé! Mi hermosa, my beautiful!

It’s time to swaddle you--tucking in each piernita, each bracito . . . everything except your sweet carita.

Welcome home, mi baby burrito. We promise to love you forever.

With gentle text, simple Spanish words, and irresistible illustrations, this new baby book is delectable.

“Dominguez’s bold, playful pictures . . . [demonstrate] something that many children know intuitively: Speaking different languages is a minor detail when it comes to making new friends.” —Publishers Weekly
