Too Many Tamales is a wonderful story of traditions. Maria is helping her mother make tamales. Her mother removes her beautiful diamond ring so that it won't get sticky from the masa. Maria picks it up and places it on her thumb. Distracted, she forgets that she was wearing it. When the cousins show up they have to help her find the ring by eating all of the tamales. But they don't find it, and now Maria must tell her mother. You will have to read the story to see if it is found in a cousins belly or someplace else.

Ed Martinze was the illustrator of this story. His artful paintings really bring Maria and her family to life
