What Can You Do with a Rebozo? Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A cradle for baby, a superhero's cape, a warm blanket on a cool night-there are so many things you can do with a rebozo. Through the eyes of a young girl, readers are introduced to the traditional shawl found in many Mexican and Mexican-American households.

Lively rhyme and illustrations as brightly colored as the woven cloths themselves celebrate a warm cultural icon that, with a little imagination, can be used in many different ways.

Bilingual edition available Spring 2009.
