In La Paz everyone loved to sing from morning until night. All that singing made it hard to hear, hard to sleep and hard to think. No one knew what to do so they fired the mayor. The newly elected mayor promised quiet and won by a landslide. There was to be no more loud singing. Anywhere. Three years went by before a rooster came into the town and began to sing. No matter what the mayor took away from the rooster, he still found something positive to sing about. Eventually, he reminding the villagers how much they loved to sing and the village went back to being noisy, just the way everyone liked it.

This story is a great multicultural book that has Spanish and English in it. There is a village that is so proud to sing all the time. The old Major got driven out and the new one in office silenced the village. This rooster would not be quiet and sang for the people. Great way to bring in someone standing up for something they believe in. ( )

La Paz is a happy, but noisy village. A little peace and quiet would make it just right.
So the villagers elect the bossy Don Pepe as their mayor. Before long, singing of any kind is outlawed. Even the teakettle is afraid to whistle!

But there is one noisy rooster who doesn't give two mangos about this mayor's silly rules. Instead, he does what roosters were born to do.

He sings:

Carmen Deedy's masterfully crafted allegory and Eugene Yelchin's bright, whimsical mixed-media paintings celebrate the spirit of freedom -- and the courage of those who are born to sing at any cost.

"The mayor of the noisy city of La Paz institutes new laws forbidding all singing, but a brave little rooster decides he must sing, despite the progressively severe punishments he receives for continuing to crow. The silenced populace, invigorated by the rooster's bravery, ousts the tyrannical mayor and returns their city to its free and clamorous state"--… (more)
