School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-4 In this bilingual picture book, Daniel Gonzalez goes to a family reunion in San Antonio, TX, expecting it to be dull. Instead, he finds himself enjoying a Tex-Mex feast, making a new friend in a cousin his age, and learning the importance of family. Spanish words and phrases are scattered throughout the English text, and vice versa. With rounded lines and muted tones, the realistically rendered, mixed-media illustrations accentuate the lighthearted mood of the story. Although his age is not mentioned, Daniel appears to be nine or ten-years-old. Since the gentle narrative lends itself to reading aloud, and the attractive, soft-focused illustrations are large enough for group viewing, this is a solid choice for storytime and classroom sharing.
