Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Practice your numbers in English and Spanish when you count the beautiful dancers, playful musicians, and happy children of Oaxaca as the Guelaguetza parade goes by! Pronounced Gal-a-get-zah, the lively celebrationand#151;full of traditional dancing and musicand#151;takes place every July deep in the heart of southern Mexico. ONE band leader with a big white balloon! DOS hombres with firecrackers! THREE musicians! FOUR giants! All exquisitely handcrafted by the Mexican folk art masters Guillermina, Josefina, Irene, and Concepciand#243;n Aguilar, in collaboration with author and scholar Cynthia Weill. Bienvenidos! Welcome to the parade!

Cynthia Weill is a professor and mentor to teachers at Columbia University's Teachers College. She also owns a non-profitand#151;Aid to Women Artisansand#151;that promotes the craftwork of artisans from developing countries. Count Me In is her fourth book in the First Concepts in Mexican Folk Art Series.

The Aguilar Sisters are Mexico's most beloved artisans. They learned how to make clay figurines from their mother Doand#241;a Isaura. These lively independent women are considered great masters of Mexican folk art and have been visited by Queen Elizabeth, Queen Sofia of Spain, various Mexican presidents, and Nelson Rockefeller. Their humorous ceramics of the people of their town and state are in museum collections the world over.

Review:

"Weill's fourth title in the bilingual First Concepts in Mexican Folk Art series, a counting book, features photographs of ceramic figurines crafted by a quartet of Oaxacan artisans known as the Aguilar Sisters. The traditionally dressed clay characters celebrate the Oaxacan festival of Guelaguetza. As the book counts to 10, each vibrantly colored page introduces a new figurine, while exclamations and comments in Spanish and English draw readers into the scenes ('The giants are my favorite! See the person wearing the costume peeking through the inside?'). Six women wear long dresses with white piping, while the text asks, 'Can you dance and carry a basket of flowers on your head too?' The vivid colors and theatrical arrangements provide a window into a lively cultural celebration. Ages 2 — up." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Oaxacan dancers and musicians celebrate with a colorful parade. Count yourself in the fun!
