From Boriquén to Bethlehem: A Coquí and the Three Wise Men
Keep the Three Kings tradition alive for present and future generations!
“From Boriquén to Bethlehem: A Coquí and the Three Wise Men” is the story of a magical coquí (a tree frog native to Puerto Rico) who traveled with a young Puerto Rican girl and the Magi to the first Christmas. The coquí’s call helps the Magi find the little Baby Jesus. In gratitude, the Kings promise the girl to yearly visit the children of Puerto Rico, and to find them wherever they may be if they hear the coquí’s song.
Geared toward Puerto Rican children, and in particular those living in the mainland U.S., the fun rhyming story explains how the Magi are able to find children’s homes, be it in San Juan or New York, in Orlando or Juana Díaz.
The book contains the text of the story in English and its translation into Spanish on the last four pages.
