    " This is a great Hispanic culture book. I enjoyed reading it. The pictures were awesome and made the story more enjoyable. It would be good book for the Christmas holiday. I am going to use it in my classroom as a read aloud while I'm teaching the comprehension skill of problem solving. Excellent book for teaching this skill. "

    " The theme that I got from this story was family traditions. The story begins with a young girl named Maria. She thinks that she has lost her mother's diamond ring while making tamales. With the help of her cousins, they eat all of the tamales in hopes of finds the ring. With no luck, they begin to really worry! In the end they find out that Maria's mother had the ring all along! This a great book full of Spanish heritage, terms, and tradition. In my experience children love learning about cultural holiday traditions other than their own. Therefore, I think students would enjoy this book as much as I did. Gary Soto and Ed Martinez both have Hispanic roots, and I think that they applied their love for their culture and that it is expressed throughout this culture friendly children's book. "
