Synopsis

What can you use
to dress up,
play hide-and-seek,
carry baby brother,
and DANCE with?


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!

 

 

Excerpt

What can you DO with a rebozo?

Mama spreads it like a butterfly to pretty up her dress for Sunday morning...

or wraps it into a cozy cradle forbaby brother, so her hands are free...to weave a braid for me!

Baby brother ducks under a rebozo to play hide-and-seek!

And do a peekaboo peek!

Big sister twirls a rebozo ‘round and ‘round

and ropes it through her shiny hair.
Carmen Tafolla|Amy Cordova

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