SUMMARY: This book was an informational text. It had photographs of people celebrating Cinco de Mayo to compliment the explanation. It also gives a history of the holiday. For example, "On May 5th, 1862, there was a big battle in the town of Puebla, Mexico. In a battle with the French army, the poor, ragged Mexican army won a great victory. The victory helped to drive foreigners out of North America." It also gives many activities and traditions that are done to celebrate this day. For example, "Musicians walk around our park. They play their guitars and violins and trumpets."

Review: This book's main idea was describing the importance and the traditions of Cinco de Mayo to a child. I think that this would be a great book to have a student use as a reference. This has a lot of valuable information and translations. For example, "We have a piñata party in the evening. The piñata is a clay pot decorated with bright colored tissue paper."
