About What Can You Do with a Rebozo? / ¿Qué puedes hacer con un rebozo?
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.
Now in an English/Spanish bilingual edition, the lively rhyme and brightly-colored illustrations of the original are available to a whole new audience.
“Pictures of family life frame simply rhythmic text, and rich bands of jewel-toned acrylics highlight and demonstrate both the versatility of the shawl and the warm family relationships.” –School Library Journal
