Tara Mensing
This book was about a boy who wanted to take part in his neighborhood masquerade by becoming a vejigante. He sewed his own costume, purchased and owned his own mask. It is written in Spanish and English and the English even incorporates some Spanish words. The theme of the story is that "sometimes persistence is the key to your dreams." Great starter in introducing a new culture to students.

I create my books out of love and the conviction that they are sorely needed, and I’ve seen them succeed. I’ve measured their success in the proud smiles of many Latino children as they join hands with their schoolmates and myself, in the game song of Arroz con Leche. Or as we all sing vejigante chants behind paper masks when recreating a carnaval. For when these Latino children feel their classma ...more
