This book is really cute. I used this book for the children at a daycare I work at during Fiesta week here in San Antonio. This book has great sight words for young readers and the rhyming of the words makes this book more fun to read aloud. This book has a lot of information about what can be seen during Fiesta time like music, flowers, and even how the celebrators dress. Perfect book for integrating a lesson plan.
