FIESTA! A CELEBRATION OF LATINO FESTIVALS is hot of the press from August House. Here's a description, "Shahan introduces a Latino festival for each month of the year, including Cinco de Mayo, Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), and Inti Raymi (Festival of the Sun). The cultures of Brazil, Costa Rica, Haiti, Mexico, Peru, and the Quiché and Cuchumatan peoples of Guatemala, are all represented. Each colorful romp features a poetic interpretation for younger readers alongside an explanation of the custom for older readers."
