  • We bought another book from Children's Book Press (now Lee & Low Books) that we absolutely love, and along with it came a catalog of their other books. My 2 year old son loved to look through the catalog, and would point to certain book covers with his own description of what he thought the book was about. He would always point to this book and say, "Eat, mama, eat!" (Eating is one of his favorite activities, as is evident by his size. Or more like we have a huge, monster hulk child who loves food.) Anyway, he would look at this tiny photo in this catalog almost every day and talk about the people eating, so a few months ago I decided to buy the book for him as a reward for good behavior.

    It's one of his favorite books. He loves studying the detailed illustrations and often wants me to read the stories to him. I love that the book is bilingual, even though we aren't teaching him spanish. If I'm not reading the book to him, I will catch him on a daily basis with the book in hand, flipping through the pages and looking for the scenes where people are eating or preparing food. Beautiful illustrations and makes a good gift for young kids.

  • I was able to use this book in my classroom to launch a unit on family traditions. My students were very intrigued by the different family traditions in Texas and Mexico, as they are from New Orleans. The illustrations were beautiful. The text itself is a little bit on the lower end in terms of reading level. I wish there were more stories rather than expository descriptions of each page.

  • I used this book, along with In My Family/En Mi Familia, during a personal narrative writing unit when student-teaching third grade at a Spanish/English bilingual school. The majority of the children were immigrants from Mexico and they found these books engaging and easy to relate to. I think it was powerful for them to see experiences like their own in a published format. We studied the way the author described small events from her life, then the students each wrote three short personal narratives based on small events from their lives. Finally they each chose one piece, translated it so that it was in both English and Spanish (like the mentor texts), and illustrated it. Then we bound all of the stories together into one book and made a photocopy of the book for each student. It was a wonderful way to celebrate the work they'd done and they really felt like published authors at the end.

  • What a nice book and like a welcome into someones home. Love it.

  • These books are great. They are bilingual (Spanish/English), collections of short memoirs from the author's experience. I have used these books for a variety of purposes, including as mentor texts with both young children and adults who are learning to write in both languages. They are uniquely American.

  • This book was an excellent addition to our library. The students love to read about other family traditions.

  • Beautiful book! I use this in my Spanish classes to talk about culture and also to use the present progressive verb tense as we describe all the action taking place.

  • We read this book frequently. My 5 year old is fascinated by the short stories on each page. The author brings you into the scene with her art and the simple narration. We are working with Spanish as a second language. We read the English and then the Spanish. It reinforces the vocabulary that she know and exposes her to more.
