Family Pictures Book CoverFamily Pictures / Cuadros de Familia
By: Carmen Lomas Garza

Family Pictures is the story of Carmen Lomas Garza’s girlhood: celebrating birthdays, making tamales, finding a hammerhead shark on the beach, picking cactus, going to a fair in Mexico, and confiding to her sister her dreams of becoming an artist. These day-to-day experiences are told through fourteen vignettes of art and a descriptive narrative, each focusing on a different aspect of traditional Mexican American culture. The English-Spanish text and vivid illustrations reflect the author’s strong sense of family and community.



Mar LibroMar
By: Ricardo Henriques

Si nuestro planeta tiene más mar que tierra, ¿por qué no se llama planeta Mar? Probablemente ya no tendremos tiempo de cambiar los diccionarios y los libros de geografía, pero aquí queda nuestro homenaje a esa gran piscina tan importante para los pueblos marineros. Este actividario (actividades + diccionario) se preparó en el mar y da palabras para rumiar y no dejar de lado. Juega con ellas y con sus significados, una y otra vez, porque en el mar hay mucha sal que probar, muchas leyendas que contar y muchas vidas que descubrir, bien sea de peces o de piratas.
