Black beans and black bean soup are staple foods for people who live anywhere from southern Mexico on down through Central America. They are comfort foods. For all people who have left their homeland to live in a new country, comfort food takes on a huge emotional importance.

This delightful poem teaches us all, young and old, how to make a heartwarming bean soup -- from gathering the beans, onions and garlic to letting them swim in the pot, until the house smells wonderful and it's time for supper.

Jorge Argueta's poetic voice and Rafael Yockteng's animated illustrations make this bilingual book about preparing bean soup a fun, almost magical experience.
