Fiction: NF Age: K-3 Many Mexican-American traditions, beliefs, and customs are reflected in the portraits created in words and pictures of one family's life in a Texas town near the Mexican border. Stylized paintings in bold color fill the right-hand pages of each double-page spread. The illustrations and careful placement of the bilingual text augment the sympathetic tone and gentle insight of this albumlike book. Horn Rating: Superior, well above average. Reviewed by: mbs
