Summary
Celebrate Cinco de Mayo continues National Geographic's spectacular Holidays Around the World series with this joyous feast of Mexican culture-an annual event in Mexico and an increasingly popular holiday in America as well. Many mistakenly assume that the fifth of May is Mexico's Independence Day. In fact, the date marks the anniversary of a famous 1862 battle in which the Mexicans defeated the French. Known as the Battle of Puebla, the victory marked a watershed in Mexican pride and unity that echoes down to the present day. With succinct text and dazzling photography, Celebrate Cinco de Mayo takes readers on a journey to discover the rich variety of celebrations across our country-from Texas to Minnesota to New York. This inviting book gives readers a flavor of the wide range of colorful holiday traditions: parades and pageants; races and rodeos; mariachi music and dancing; parties with piñatas and delicious Mexican foods. Children will learn how the largest Cinco de Mayo event in the world, the Fiesta Broadway, actually takes place in the United States, and attracts more than 600,000 revelers each year. Mexico is our closest neighbor and the birthplace of America's largest immigrant community; a knowledge of Mexican culture and history is increasingly relevant to students across the United States.National Geographic supports K-12 educators with ELA Common Core Resources.Visit www.natgeoed.org/commoncore for more information.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This picture-book-sized title in the Holidays around  the World series combines a clear, read-aloud-friendly text with big, beautiful color photos. After introducing Cinco de Mayo's 1862 origins, Otto shows and tells how the celebration has become an annual, joyous festival of Mexican culture, both north and south of the border. The photos, primarily of U.S. celebrations, offer colorful views of fiestas, musicians, dance, food, and parades. Excellent back matter includes a bibliography, recipes, a glossary, and an informative afterword, aimed at adult readers, about the holiday's place in Latino culture.--Rochman, Hazel Copyright 2008 Booklist"
