Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This picture book is about thing you can do with a rebozo. A young girl and her family show all the things they do with a rebozo. This book has rich illustrations and colorful cultual icon.
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.
