From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3—Told in verse, this story shows how a family celebrates Papá Luis's very special birthday. It begins, "Ãësta es la fiesta para Papá Luis." Each page adds a new line to the story and a component of the party. From bringing out the piñata to the arrival of the guest of honor, each page describes everyone's contribution to the festivities. The children are in charge of the candy, Mamá Marta bakes the cake and the nieces place the candles on it, and friends and family dance the day away. The humorous illustrations of clowns, conga lines, and empanadas, and the boldly colored exaggerated cartoons of the relatives perfectly depict the party atmosphere and the joy felt by this family. Children will leave this book dreaming of parties.—Rebecca Alcalá, San Mateo County Library, CA
