K-Gr 2–Rosi and her family love Nochebuena because that’s when her family gathers in Abuela’s kitchen to make tamales. Each family member has a task to accomplish for the night as they prepare the tamales using a family recipe. Some special ingredients include protection and security, pride, love and care, and many hugs. Every tamale has one olive at the center that is hugged by the yummy flesh of the tamale. Everyone’s favorite moment of night is when the tamale leaves are opened and it’s time to dig in. This beautifully illustrated text reminds readers of the importance of family and sharing a meal together. The digital jewel-toned illustrations capture the joy and warmth of every family scene.
VERDICT The visual representation of traditions being handed down through generations makes this a powerful read-aloud for the holidays and beyond.
