    1. Being born in Mexico, I think this book represents well traditions, customs, and values in the small towns; however, I think there are stereotypes in the different concepts thorughout the book. I feel that this book represents a conservative Mexico with old ideas. I totally believe that we can teach traditions and values in a more contemporary scenario. When reading this book with my students, most of them felt identified with certain events in the story even though I sensed they got somehow tir [...]

    2. This children's book is filled with events and emotions that a lot of children can relate too. A lot of people have that cousin or relative member growing up that they wish they could do the things they did. The illustrations in this book are really realistic, especially the faces. I think children who are a little older can enjoy this book, I would say 4+. I enjoyed the book, but thought some of it was stereotypical.

    3. Published: 2004This realistic fiction children's book is about a girl who lives with her grandmother, but also visits her Catholic grandmother, whom one day the girl steals the rosary from and becomes very guilty and turns herself in.

    4. This book is unfortunately titled. A good story, both complex (in feeling and conflict for the main character) and simple (in language and storyline). Although the narrator compares herself to her cousin, the book is NOT about cousins. It is more a comparison of two extended families, two lives and sets of religious values, both part of this unnamed child's life. Themes: religion, family, stealing, jealousy.
