It's time for Carnival! Puerto Rico's most magical holiday is full of sights and sounds to explore. Rosi Coquí is determined to show her brother the best way to enjoy the parade, while Rafi has a plan to make his sister queen for a day! But when Rafi scares Rosi with his terrible vejigante mask, she decides it's time to teach him a lesson. Even a little sister has a few tricks up her sleeve—and it's all part of the mischief of Carnival!
Lulu Delacre's rafi and rosi was hailed by critics for "the teasing banter and tender rapport between the siblings" (School Library Journal). Here once again Ms. Delacre brings us a charming story of two Puerto Rican tree frogs who share the special bond of being brother and sister. Young readers will especially enjoy sounding out a sprinkling of easy Spanish words that add flavor to the stories.
