Some strange things start happening as Rosa Maria prepares for her granddaughter's birthday party! It's a good thing some very clever mice live with her!
"Grandmother Rosa is preparing a birthday party for her grand daughter, Catalina. Like the room in her heart for loved ones, she has lots of room in her tiny house for the party. But this doesn't include MICE! The very mice that are in her way (she's always setting traps) are the very mice who help her when she forgets something important (to put candy in the pinata). The mice and Abuelita become friends! The text introduces Spanish vocabulary seamlessly as the party preparations proceed through a week. A fun little story full of love and rich, happy illustrations. Just try to read it only once, just try! More mice, more beans, a second helping, please? Although this story is about a birthday party, it would be a great choice for Cinco De Mayo as well in that it is so full of culture, art, and language." (An Amazon Review by Hawkmoon)
