Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
This is a delightful story of two mice who declaim their love for each other by comparing it to a different number of animals. "My love for you ... is heftier than 9 hippos" offers a spread filled with the requisite number of hippos which are imaginatively stacked on top of each other in three hefty piles. It's a warm, funny, and humorous counting lesson.

This book takes us into the writer's life and her definition of her family and culture. Carmen Lomas Garza tells of her hometown Kingsville, Texas and how her family lived through vivid paintings that depict the importance of her Mexican American culture. Through out the book the pictures offer explanations of what she is speaking of. Garza talks of cleaning empanadas with her father, earache treatments that her mother performed, and healers who helped cleansed her sister to just to name a few. This is a great book that offers an eye into the Mexican culture. Each page in this book is written in both Spanish and English giving readers a more in depth cultural experience. I really enjoyed this book and believe you will too.
