Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Para los ninos, Tafolla and Cordova weave together a delightful swirl of color, rhythm, and rhyme, delightful as a rebozo. ---Pat Mora
School Library Journal

K-Gr 1
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.

What can you DO with a rebozo?

Mama spreads it like a butterfly to pretty up her dress for Sunday morning...

or wraps it into a cozy cradle forbaby brother, so her hands are free...to weave a braid for me!

Baby brother ducks under a rebozo to play hide-and-seek!

And do a peekaboo peek!

Big sister twirls a rebozo ‘round and ‘round

and ropes it through her shiny hair.
