About this title:

Synopsis: Renowned photojournalist George Ancona celebrates his heritage in this authentic and engaging tour of the land south of the border. From his many travels in Mexico, Ancona has culled memorable details and a slew of original photographs -- intimate snapshots of people in everyday settings. A remarkable photostudy, Viva Mexico! combines stunning, full-color images with a lively and concise narrative sprinkled with Spanish words and expressions. Mexico's culture, history and spirit are revealed through The Foods, The Fiestas, The Folk Arts, The Past and The People. Each volume -- whether focusing on food or art, ancient beginnings or current conflicts -- captures the many flavors and traditions of the land and its people. This series is a wonderful means of encouraging young readers to the north to appreciate their neighbor's rich heritage.

From Booklist: Reviewed with other titles by Ancona in the Viva Mexico! set.

Gr. 3-6. Each book in this five-book Viva Mexico! set is packed with crisp color photographs by veteran photographer Ancona, who is known for his Latin-themed photo-essays, among them, Pablo Remembers: The Fiesta of the Day of the Dead (1993). The books are a visual feast, but the material, which might easily have made up topical chapters in a single, comprehensive book about Mexico, has been stretched across five books to accommodate Ancona's numerous photos. The only title substantive enough to justify a separate book is The Past, which details Mexico's complicated history in a clear, straightforward manner. A short glossary, and a "Find Out More" list of books for further reading conclude each volume. At $16.95 per book, the set is not an economical purchase, but it is certainly lovely to look at. Recommended for collections concentrating on Latino studies and those that have generous budgets. Annie Ayres
