"A warm family story that combines glowing art with a well-written text to tell of a girl's dilemma." —School Library Journal, starred review

Criticas
K-Gr 2-This gifted storyteller brings to life one of the many traditions that form a Latino Christmas celebration. Maria is helping her mother prepare the masa ("dough") for the traditional Christmas tamales when she decides to try on her mother's wedding ring. When she can't find the ring, she assumes it has fallen into the masa and recruits her cousins into eating all the tamales to help her search for it. In this simple tale, Soto makes readers laugh and cheer for Maria and her family.

    A Christmas Must-Have!

    Great book for Hispanics or ESL students and teachers. Use in conjunction with the English version. Work a math lesson in with it.

    Not for me

    Sorry, but I just felt this was too sugary sweet and pretty boring. Also, although it's supposed to be a latino household, I couldn't really buy it. The kids are dressed like in the Little House on the Prairie and live in what to me looks like an American suburb - I don't get it. Our kids '4 and 6' found it quite dull.
