Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-A gathering of traditions from the festival of Guadalupe through La Navidad, Three Kings' Day, Carnaval, Corpus Christi, Independence Day, and the Day of the Dead. Each entry for a cultural/religious event is colorfully illustrated in a vibrant folkloric style that captures the very essence of ancient hieroglyphs and modern retablos. Holiday recipes and lyrics to popular songs that are key to these celebrations make this fascinating collection particularly informative. A brief glossary of Spanish terms is included. An ideal book on the history, legends, artwork, and food intrinsic to the ritualistic festivities of modern Mexico.-Selene S. Vasquez, Orange Brook Elementary School, Hollywood, FL
