Our Celebración! By Susan Middleton Elya
It's a sunny day and everyone is headed to the main plaza for the start of the town parade and summer celebration. Follow along the parade route with a family of six as the festivities unfold. There are people riding motorcycles, bicycles, tricycles, and unicycles. Firefighters spray water on hot spectators. Bands of musicians playing clarinetes, saxophones, flautas, trumpets, and more march by. Lemonade, watermelon, tacos, and ice cream are consumed. The corn princess waves as her float goes by. And when a quick rain shower comes, the spectators duck for cover, and are rewarded with a colorful rainbow. Back in the main plaza at night, the festivities end with sparkling fireworks. Pop, pop, pop! Bon, bon, bon!
With engaging text and imaginative, whimsical illustrations, Celebracion! is the perfect way to enjoy a summer day and learn some Spanish too." —Goodreads
