Synopsis: With her grandfather to ill to cut the wood for the traditional luminarias and her father in the hospital, it is up to Luz to create her own little lanterns, or farolitos, which she makes out of candles, paper bags, and sand, for a special Christmas holiday.

From Booklist: Ages 5^-9. Richly colored full-page paintings show a lovingly individualized Chicano family that is part of a New Mexico community in the open landscape under the starlit winter sky. Anaya's upbeat story, first published in a magazine in 1987, focuses on Luz, a young girl whose father, wounded in World War II, hasn't come home yet. Her sick grandfather is not strong enough to cut the logs for the traditional luminarias (small bonfires), so Luz and her Indian friend Reina from a nearby pueblo find a way to make farolitos (lighted candles in paper bags weighted with sand) to light the way for the Christmas pilgrims. The Spanish words are a natural part of the narrative (they're explained in a glossary at the back), and if the plot's contrived (Dad returns home just in time), the image of the path of light is touching and beautiful. Hazel Rochman
