We learn about the traditions & legends specific to Hispanic culture, such as the celebration of the posadas for 9 nights leading up to Christmas, with candy raining down from colorful piñatas, eggshells filled with confetti, & paper lanterns crafted to illuminate the town on Christmas Eve. We learn about “The Legend of the Poinsettia” & the children’s song, “If You Give Me Meat Pies.” 36 inspiring literary selections comprise this enchanting collection of works from Mexican, Colombian, Cuban, & Puerto Rican writers. There are stories, traditional tales, songs, & poems, vivid illus., & original Spanish text for all poetry.
