Review:
This is the illustrator and storyteller's bilingual memoir of growing up in Texas, fully immersed in her family's Mexican traditions. The illustrations are painted in a flat, naïve style, bringing out the details of celebrations and everyday activities from cakewalk scholarship fundraisers to visits from the curandera to eating watermelon on the porch on a hot summer evening. There is always a mix of ages and generations, emphasizing activities all members of a family enjoy in their own ways. Lomas Garza explains the paintings, supplying additional information, making this book an introduction to the artistic process as well as a family history.
