Horn Book Review

Cinco de Mayo is "a time to take pride in Mexican traditions and share them with others in the community." The book alternates between historical background and one Mexican American family's preparations for Cinco de Mayo celebrations in Hercules, California. The text is informative but dense and the design is busy, though the many photographs do provide a lively backdrop. Glos., ind. (c) Copyright 2010.
