In a playful celebration of a vibrant culture, a young girl and her family show all the things they do in their daily lives with a rebozo, a traditional Mexican woven shawl. Lively prose and rich illustrations honor a warm and colorful cultural icon.
You can do almost anything with a rebozo--and a little imagination!
With flowing color, as vibrant as the cloth it describes, Córdova's illustrations pay a tribute to the traditional Mexican shawl. Each page follows a young girl as she describes daily activities from the creative to the practical, utilizing a rebozo as a wardrobe accessory over her shoulders and through her hair. The pages feature the imaginative games of a child: as a tunnel between chairs, a superhero's cape, a slide for a bed, or a cradle for baby brother. Pictures of family life frame simple rhythmic text, and rich bands of jewel-toned acrylics highlight and demonstrate both the versatility of the shawl and the warm family relationships. The book includes a short history of the garment and cultural traditions.
