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.
Now in an English/Spanish bilingual edition, the lively rhyme and brightly-colored illustrations of the original are available to a whole new audience.
"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
Amy Cordova is a self-taught artist who lives in the mountains of northern New Mexico. About her work she says, "My art and writing come from a place inside me; I want to see what feelings look like, not just images. When I draw, my pictures tell stories. Through my writing, I make pictures." Ms. Cordova has written and illustrated a picture book, Abijelita's Heart, and she is the illustrator of My Night Forest, by Roy Owen.
