CriticasK-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.
