"What can you use
to dress up,
carry baby brother,
and DANCE with?"
In a playful celebration of a vibrant culture, a young girl and her family show all the things they do in their daily lives with a rebozo, a traditional Mexican woven shawl. Lively prose and rich illustrations honor a warm and colorful cultural icon.
You can do almost anything with a rebozo--and a little imagination
