About this item

"Papá, I don't want to go to sleep. I'm scared." Everyone knows that the trick to putting children to bed is creating a bedtime routine, and in this new children's story from Victor Villaseñor, he recreates his own family's bedtime tradition. Papá tells his son that every night when he was a boy, his mother would sing him to sleep with the turtledove song. "Coo-coo-roo-coo-coooo," he sings, and tells the little boy about his very own Guardian Angel who will take him through the night sky to be reunited with God, or Papito Dios. "Then in the morning, you'll come back refreshed, rested, and powerful as the wind." As Papá sings the turtledove song to his son, he reminds the child that Mamá loves him, the dog and the cat love him, and his brothers and sisters love him too.
