What Can You Do with a Rebozo? : ¿Qué Puedes Hacer Con Un Rebozo? (Bilingual English/ Spanish)

by Carmen Tafolla (Author) Amy Cordova (Illustrator)

Reading Level: 2nd − 3rd Grade

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.

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

Una cuna para un bebé, una capa de superhéroe, una manta calentita en una noche fresca, hay tantas cosas que puedes hacer con un rebozo. A través de los ojos de una niña, los lectores conocen el chal tradicional que se encuentra en muchos hogares mexicanos y mexicoamericanos.

Las imágenes de la vida familiar enmarcan un texto rítmico simple, y las ricas bandas de acrílicos en tonos de joyas resaltan y demuestran tanto la versatilidad del chal como las cálidas relaciones familiares. --Diario de la biblioteca escolar
