The country of Mexico has long been a popular travel destination. But there's much more to enjoy and appreciate than just sunshine and warm temperatures when exploring this region with its ancient history and proud traditions. Enjoy an A-Z tour of our neighbor to the south in P is for Pinata: A Mexico Alphabet. Young readers can visit the tomb of a Mayan king, experience the life of the vaquero (Mexican cowboy), attend the world-famous Ballet Folklorico de Mexico, and sample the everyday treat that was once known as the food of the gods. From folk art to famous people to the original hot dog, the treasures of Mexico are revealed in P is for Pinata. Vibrant artwork perfectly captures the flavor, texture, and spirit of its landscape and culture.
