PreS-Gr 1-Cepeda's lively paintings take a colorful, dynamic look at a warm Latino neighborhood celebration of the holiday season. The alphabet action is a little uneven, with the emphasis on simple Spanish words that are easily understood with the illustration and/or supporting text. The word choices are weakened with a jump to English, "W is for wise men,/tres reyes, three kings," and "X is for excelente,/the feeling He brings!" ll and rr are bonus combinations to expand the reach of the alphabet. This book has potential to provide a springboard for discussion of holiday traditions while keeping children entertained visually. A glossary with pronunciation guide is attached.-Anne Connor, Los Angeles Public LibraryCopyright 2007 Reed Business Information

My family & I are Mexican-Americans, & have lived in the USA for 4 generations. I have always been fascinated with our Mexican roots & wanted to know more about our culture & be able to teach my 3 year old son. This book was perfect. I have been celebrating the Dia De Los Reyes since he was born, but with this book he was able to understand it a little more. This was the first year he was truly excited about the 3 Kings coming. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to share the Mexican cultlure with their children. The illustrations are beautiful & colorful & catch the childs interest.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
