Now available in paperback, Guacamole is the third title of Jorge Argueta’s popular bilingual Cooking Poems series, celebrating the joys of preparing, eating and sharing food.

Guacamole originated in Mexico with the Aztecs and has long been popular in North America, especially in recent years due to the many health benefits of avocados. This version of the recipe is easy to make, calling for just avocados, limes, cilantro and salt. A little girl dons her apron, singing and dancing around the kitchen as she shows us what to do. Poet Jorge Argueta sees beauty, magic and fun in everything around him avocados are like green precious stones, salt falls like rain, cilantro looks like a little tree and the spoon that scoops the avocado from its skin is like a tractor.

As in all the titles in this series, Guacamole conveys the pleasure of making something delicious to eat for people you really love. A great book for families to enjoy together.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The avocados are waiting for me,
so big and green and beautiful.
I squeeze them gently with my hands and
can tell that they are soft and ripe,
with their shiny tender skin,
like leaves in my garden
after the rain.

I wash them in the fountain of the sink
and then, dancing and singing,
I put them on the red kitchen table.
