Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Laura J. Brown
Cinco de Mayo is a holiday that is celebrated in Mexico. It is a day of celebration, but it did not start that way. It started as a time of war and hardship when Mexico was a new nation. The people who lived in Mexico were facing many problems and their new nation was in dire financial trouble. They needed help from other countries. Other countries gave Mexico money with the agreement that Mexico would pay the money back. The Mexicans had planned to do just that, but they could not. Readers will learn how these events led to the holiday that is celebrated every May 5th. Of all the places in Mexico, the city of Puebla is where the celebration is most special. The food, the music, and the dancing are to be enjoyed by all. Readers will love learning about this holiday and will learn even more through the colorful illustrations. People all over the world have adopted this celebration but it belongs to Mexico. Part of the "Cultural Holidays" series, this rich history is a lot of fun, too. Reviewer: Laura J. Brown
