A rebozo

In a playful celebration of a vibrant culture, a young girl and her family show all the things they do in their daily lives with a rebozo, a traditional Mexican woven shawl. Lively prose and rich illustrations honor a warm and colorful cultural icon.
You can do almost anything with a rebozo--and a little imagination

Para los ninos, Tafolla and Cordova weave together a delightful swirl of color, rhythm, and rhyme, delightful as a rebozo. ---Pat Mora
