Fiesta Babies by Carmen Tafolla, Ill. by Amy Cordova

FiestaBabies-300x298

Publishing: Tricycle Press, Berkeley, 2010.

Description: As it sounds, this cute little book talks about babies attending a fiesta. The phrases are short and rhyme, making for a pleasant read. Many Spanish words and concepts are introduced.

Programming: Because the pictures and text go so well together, have students predict what they think words mean, from the cover to the end. (examples: fiesta, siesta, coronas, salsa, etc.) Have your own mini-fiesta with the items mentioned-a mariachi song, salsa, coronas, etc.
