Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cada diciembre, abuelita Lupita le cuenta a Rosa la historia de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe. Mientras ambas hacen flores de papel para colocar alrededor de su estatua, abuelita comienza: Hace mucho tiempo, durante una fría mañana de diciembre, cerca de lo que hoy es la Ciudad de México, un señor llamado Juan Diego se puso su tilma y comenzó a caminar…      

         Durante su camino, Juan Diego se encuentra con una hermosa Señora rodeada de luz, cuyo manto cubierto de estrellas, brilla. Ella le pide que visite al obispo y le diga que construya una iglesia en su nombre.  

         Pero Juan Diego no es un hombre rico o con influencia. ¿Cómo podrá convencer al obispo que la hermosa Señora apareció frente a él? Y cuando el obispo le exige una prueba, ¿cómo podrá Juan Diego pedirle una seña a la Señora?

El milagro de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe es la manifestación de la Virgen María más conocida de las Américas. La célebre autora Pat Mora, junto con los premiados ilustradores Steve Johnson y Lou Fancher traen esta historia tan querida en México y el resto del mundo a los lectores pequeños por medio de una prosa lírica que invita a la lectura e ilustraciones sensacionalmente vivas.

Synopsis:

Every December, Grandma Lupita tells Rose the story of Our Lady of Guadalupe. As they make paper flowers to put around her statue, Grandma begins: Long ago, on a cold December morning near what is now Mexico City, a man named Juan Diego put on his cloak and started down the road to church. On his way, Juan Diego sees a beautiful Lady at the top of a hill. She tells Juan Diego to go to the bishop and ask him to build a special church for her. But the bishop doesn't believe that Juan Diego has seen the Lady; he asks for a sign. Again the Lady sends Juan Diego, and again the bishop asks for a sign. Until finally, she provides one: her shining image on Juan Diego's cloak for everyone to see.
