N is for Navidad
By Susan Middleton Elya
Illustrated by Joe Cepeda
Most enjoyed by anyone wishing to practice their Spanish!

Here's a great book to celebrate the Christmas holiday and learn some new Spanish words at the same time. The description on the dust jacket describes it best:

"Bienvenidos! to a celebration of Christmas, Latino-style!
From the angel (angel) hung above the door to the
zapatos (shoes) filled with grass for the wise men's camels,
each letter of this festive alphabet introduces children
to a new Spanish word."

The colorful illustrations bring out the joy in the 22 day celebration of Christmas to make this a great introduction to an important part of Latino heritage. Feliz Navidad!
