La autora de bestsellers Lesl a Newman ofrece un tierno y oportuno cuento de una ni a puertorrique a que enfrenta un hurac n y su preocupaci n por los amados coqu es de su isla natal.

After snuggling into bed each night, Alicia listens for the big voices of the tiny coqu es that live all around Puerto Rico and sing her to sleep. Ko-kee, ko-kee, the little frogs call. Ko-kee, ko-kee.

One day a terrible hurricane comes to Puerto Rico, and Alicia and her family take refuge in a shelter. At bedtime Alicia hears grown-ups snoring and babies crying, wind howling and rain pounding. But even though she listens hard, she cannot hear the song of the coqu es. Are the little tree frogs safe? And what will Alicia and her family find at home when the storm is over?

Alicia and the Hurricane is a tender look at the resilience of people, and native creatures, whose lives have been disrupted by a natural disaster. With love and support, family and friends come together to share, rebuild, and fill Alicia's heart with hope. Ko-kee, ko-kee

Pero a pesar de que escucha con atenci n, no puede o r el canto de los coqu es. Estar n a salvo las ranitas? Con qu se encontrar n Alicia y su familia cuando la tormenta haya terminado?

Alicia y el hurac n es una mirada sensible a la tenacidad de la gente y otras criaturas de la naturaleza cuyas vidas son afectadas por un desastre natural. Con amor y apoyo, las familias y los amigos se re nen para compartir, reconstruir y llenar el coraz n de Alicia de esperanza. Co-qu , coqu
