Bilingual English/Spanish. From the Bellybutton of the Moon is renowned poet Francisco X. Alarc n's collection of 22 poems inspired by his touching recollections of childhood summers in Mexico.

With a poet's magical vision, Alarc n takes us back to his childhood when he traveled with his family to Mexico to visit his grandma and other relatives. We travel with him in the family station wagon, across the misty mountain range to the little town of Atoyac. There, in the beloved town of his ancestors, we hear his grandma's stories, sample Auntie Reginalda's tasty breakfasts, learn about the keys to the universe, and take playful dips in the warm sea. The lighthearted illustrations of Maya Christina Gonzalez perfectly capture the spirit of summer in Alarc n's Mexico where colors are more colorful, tastes are tastier, and even time seems to slow down.
