Marimba! Animales from A to Z by Pat Mora. il Doug Cushman.
Clarion Books/Houghton Mifflin: NY, 2006.

Each letter has a Spanish animal name to go along with the English words. All of the animals at the zoo are preparing for and participating in the spontaneous party after hours - all started by the ting-tong of the marimba. The animales perform several dances, enjoy various foods, and communicate with their own styles. It's a fun book with unusual words and many details to spy.

There is a pronunciation key at the back.
