Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In her third book, the author of "Family Pictures/Cuadros de Familia" takes readers on a fascinating journey--in both English and Spanish--that explores her family, community, and ancestors through the traditional folk art of "papel picado" or cut-paper art. Full-color illustrations.

Synopsis:

Through the magic windows of her cut-paper art (papel picado), Carmen Lomas Garza reveals her family, her life as an artist, and the legends of her Aztec past. Readers catch a glimpse of the hummingbirds that carry the souls of ancestors and persist in crossing the Mexican-American border to taste the sweet nectar of the cactus flowers; they look into Garza's studio and see her paint a Mexican jarabe tapatio dancer; and they watch her teach her nieces and nephews how to make their own magic windows in this fascinating exploration of Mexican family life, community, and history.
