LATINO BABY BOOK CLUB

This bookclub group is for "Mami/Papi and Me." 

This month's book is GROWING UP WITH TAMALES / LOS TAMALES DE ANA by Gwendolyn Zepeda.   The book is written in both English and Spanish.

Synopsis:  GROWING UP WITH TAMALES is an imaginative story that centers around the family tradition of making tamales. The tale is told from the perspective of six year old Ana, who yearns to be just like her big sister, Lidia. Two years younger than her sister, Ana imagines what her life will be like when she is Lidia’s age…at eight, ten, 12, 14, 16, and finally 18. The funny ending is sure to amuse its readers!
