The Night of Las Posadas by Tomie de Paola.  Ages 4 - 8. This tale is in English - great for introducing Hispanic culture to children.  Recommended in Lesson 32 Las Posadas in Level 1 of the Sonrisas Elementary Curriculum and Lesson 4 - Las Posadas - in the Sonrisas Cultural Curriculum.

Another beautiful offering from dePaola, this one tells the story of a modern-day Las Posadas procession in Santa Fe, NM. An introduction explains the background and history of the old Spanish custom, and a glossary translates the few words of Spanish used in the text. Sister Angie, who recently celebrated her 50th anniversary as a nun, has always coordinated the preparations for her village's celebration. This year, she is especially proud as her niece, Lupe, and Lupe's new husband will portray Maria and Jose. The festivities are jeopardized when Sister Angie comes down with the flu and the young couple's car breaks down in a snowstorm. A miracle occurs when a beautiful carving of Mary and Joseph, given to Sister Angie to commemorate her Golden Jubilee, comes to life to lead the village's procession. The artist's distinctive acrylic artwork, done in the colors of the Southwest, illuminate the story and radiate its reverence and warmth.

Paperback or Hardback, 30 pages.
