With her father away fighting in World War II and her grandfather too sick to create the traditional luminaria, Luz helps create farolitos, little lanterns, for their Christmas celebration instead.

When i picked up this picture book I instantly knew that just by looking at the cover the illustrations were going to be phenomenal. And i was right! Children that may has lost a grandparent can relate to this story in particular because it shows how a young girl was able to commemorate the death of her grandfather by carrying on traditions that he instilled in her. Just based on the illustrations alone the reader can clearly see that the characters in this book are family oriented. Upon flipping through the pages i came across one picture that vibrantly illustrates the relationship between a child and her father while he is sitting in a big comfy chair and she is hugging him, and another picture that appears to show siblings laughing together while they decorate the Christmas tree. I recommend this book as an excellent aid towards children dealing with a loss or for families that feel strongly about teaching happiness in remaining true to your culture and traditions.Was this review helpful?
