About the Author:

Aurora Garcia is a Heinemann-Raintree author.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2–3—These books provide simplified information, with the majority of each one covering the origin of the celebration and how it has evolved over the years. The texts have stayed the same since the 2003 editions, though pictures have been enlarged and their colors made brighter and clearer. Color photos and other illustrations enhance every page. Cinco de Mayo describes how Mexican-Americans celebrate their heritage with parades, music, dancing, and festivals, in honor of the freedom they won on May 5, 1862, in a battle against the French army. Valentine's Day explains the custom of sending cards and ways we show affection. The freeing of the slaves after the Civil War and related traditions such as storytelling and dancing are covered in Juneteenth. All three books conclude with lists of important dates and a three-item, current further reading list. Paired with other books, these reliable sources will be great supplements for holiday basics.—Sandra Welzenbach, Villarreal Elementary School, San Antonio, TX
