Fiesta Babies

by Carmen Tafolla
Illustrated by Amy Córdova

Published by Tricycle Press, 2010
20 pages
ISBN: 978-1-58246-319-3

Ages birth - 3

A vibrant picture book celebrates very young children and elements of Latino culture and family life. Each double-page spread features a rhyming couplet describing “fiesta” babies in action (“Fiesta babies sing along / to Grandpa’s favorite mariachi song!”). A detailed illustration decorates the page of text, while the full-page illustration opposite depicts a colorful scene featuring one or more young children engaged in the activity described. Both the short, bouncy narrative and the art that accompanies it are full of energy and appreciation for Latino culture, and all children. The artist focuses on Latinos in scenes depicting family life and shows children from diverse backgrounds in other scenes.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
