Publisher Comments:

The Rookie Read-About "RM" Holidays series introduces young readers to the origins, purpose, and means of celebrating a variety of national, ethnic, civic, religious, and historical holidays from around the world. Cinco de Mayo, which means "Fifth of May, " celebrates Mexico's unexpected victory in a battle against French soldiers that occurred on that day in 1862. Today, the holiday is a day of Mexican pride, celebration, and good food for people both in Mexico and the United States. Children will learn the history of this holiday, as well as ways that children celebrate it, including attending parades, dancing to Mariachi music, decorating trees and fences with handmade paper flowers, dressing in Mexico's national colors, and having festive meals with family and friends.

Synopsis:

Following the well-known and much-loved Rookie Books format, these fun and informative books introduce early elementary-school children to the basic facts about major holidays. Each book explains the development of the holiday and how it is celebrated today, and includes holiday games, traditions, crafts, and foods.<P>May 5th is fiesta time and everyone's invited to listen to the Mariachi bands, dance to the music, break pinatas, and eat tasty tamales to commemorate a battle for freedom won in Mexico a long time ago.
