El vaso de miel

Overview

"Regalar miel es como regalar un ramo de flores. También es como decir una cosa bonita a alguien, un cumplido. Es como dar un abrazo sincero. Todos queremos miel."

Estas son las historias que me contaba la abuela, las historias que me contaba mi abuelo. Como me las contaron se las cuento. Son historias antiguas, como es antiguo el mundo, para oír en la noche, alrededor del fuego, un momento antes que se cierren los ojos y comencemos a soñar.

Editorial Reviews

Criticas
Grade 3-5–Firmly set in the Mayan traditions of the Yucatan Peninsula and told in its colloquial dialect, this collection of 11 tales includes both creation myths and pourquoi stories. The initial story begins in the village of Chimel with the annual fiesta but moves into the tale of Grandmother Moon and Grandfather Sun's boredom, from which all creation came to be. From this moment of creation to the advent of the marimbas, the cultural sense of integration between animals, people, and the environment is utterly clear, and the message of the interdependence of all creation is unmistakable. Static and slow moving despite their inherently interesting premises—a man who trades places with a vulture, how monkeys descend from humans and not the other way around, the reason some animals are four footed and other are not—the stores do not hold readers' interest when read. Memorized and recounted, especially if abridged a bit, they may well have more appeal. The pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations are awkward and amateurish, and do little to relieve the dull tenor of the text. Certainly unique in their Mayan perspective, this collection may have a place in college collections, but children will be better served by Subcomandante Marcos's The Story of Colors/La historia de los colores (Cinco Puntos, 1999) or any of Joe Hayes's excellent collections, for example The Day it Snowed Tortillas/El día que nevaron tortillas (Cinco Puntos, 2003).
