Cinco de Mayo Books for Children

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Commentary

by Daniel Nardini

The Mexican holiday Cinco de Mayo is not only celebrated in cultural events and festivals, it is also a point of pride and heritage in children’s books. For those parents who want their children to know something about Cinco de Mayo, I recommend the books Celebrating American Holidays: Cinco de Mayo, and Fiesta!: A Celebration of Latino Festivals. The Cinco de Mayo holiday is as much a part of America and American Latino history as it is a holiday in Mexico.
