Synopsis

Cada diciembre, abuelita Lupita le cuenta a Rosa la historia de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe. Mientras ambas hacen flores de papel para colocar alrededor de su estatua, abuelita comienza: Hace mucho tiempo, durante una fría mañana de diciembre, cerca de lo que hoy es la Ciudad de México, un señor llamado Juan Diego se puso su tilma y comenzó a caminar…      
         Durante su camino, Juan Diego se encuentra con una hermosa Señora rodeada de luz, cuyo manto cubierto de estrellas, brilla. Ella le pide que visite al obispo y le diga que construya una iglesia en su nombre.  
         Pero Juan Diego no es un hombre rico o con influencia. ¿Cómo podrá convencer al obispo que la hermosa Señora apareció frente a él? Y cuando el obispo le exige una prueba, ¿cómo podrá Juan Diego pedirle una seña a la Señora?
El milagro de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe es la manifestación de la Virgen María más conocida de las Américas. La célebre autora Pat Mora, junto con los premiados ilustradores Steve Johnson y Lou Fancher traen esta historia tan querida en México y el resto del mundo a los lectores pequeños por medio de una prosa lírica que invita a la lectura e ilustraciones sensacionalmente vivas.
