We love this book. I have read it to my 3rd and 5th graders for over 12 years . It is written with such a style that it allows the readers to peak into the Hispanic culture and show us the true meaning of Christmas with our loved Poinsettias. It touches our heart every time!I have developed thematic units with centers to develop the skills needed for my lesson plans. The illustrations are also outstanding. YRYR
