A special treat is in store for readers in book number 4, Happy Birthday, Josefina! Find out who Florecita is. And what is going to happen to Florecita soon? A fascinating storyline along with detailed color illustrations are sure to hold the reader's attention. The section "A Peek Into The Past" offers readers insight into life in 1824 for people living in what today is called New Mexico. And the glossary will assist with vocabulary building skills. Readers will be informed about the lifestyle of Pueblo Indians during the 1800s. Here is a quote from the book: "We're all given second chances. We just have to be brave enough to take them."
