A cradle for baby, a superhero's cape, a warm blanket on a cool night--there are so many things you can do with a rebozo. Through the eyes of a young girl, readers are introduced to the traditional shawl found in many Mexican and Mexican-American households.

Now in an English/Spanish bilingual edition, the lively rhyme and brightly-colored illustrations of the original are available to a whole new audience.

"Pictures of family life frame simply rhythmic text, and rich bands of jewel-toned acrylics highlight and demonstrate both the versatility of the shawl and the warm family relationships." --School Library Journal

Personal Response:I appreciate the simple text and well-drawn illustrations. The flowing of the rebozo in the illustrations suggests an unlimited number of possible uses for this traditional clothing item. I also appreciated the information about the rebozo provided at the end of the story.Curricular Connections:This would make an excellent addition to a bilingual story time, a story time about family/traditions/clothing/Mexico. A community member could come in and discuss rebozo and perhaps bring different examples. Children can be encouraged to take every day clothing items and think up fun new uses for these items.
