Joe Hayes’ Dance, Nana, Dance has won the 2009 Aesop Award! October 16, 2009
--Cinco Puntos Press

Joe Hayes’ Dance, Nana, Dance has won the 2009 Aesop Award! Given annually by the American Folklore Society, the coveted award recognizes outstanding new books of folklore for children and young adults.

In their award letter, the Aesop committee said, “…Please convey [the committee’s] congratulations to Joe Hayes and Mauricio Trenard Sayago on this outstanding bilingual work of Cuban folktales. With a style that captures the rhythmic pulse of the Cuban way of life, the vibrant storytelling in this collection of tales by Joe Hayes will delight Spanish-speaking and English-speaking children alike.

The accurate translation builds familiarity in reading and expressing ideas in a second language. The colorful illustrations reflect the warmth of Cuban folk art. We hope that this anthology will inspire young readers to gain great awareness of Cuban cultural sensibilities.”
