I See The Sun in Mexico #holidaygiftguide
I love the "I See The Sun" book series..
We have the Afghanistan book and the Russia book and now we can add Mexico to the list!
The reason that I enjoy these books is that you are able to get an "inside look" into the country the book is about. Also, they do not just use pictures or drawings, they do a collage type and incorporate both works of art into the book.
In I See The Sun in Mexico, we spend the day with Luis.
He wakes up and wakes his siblings up for the day while his mother returns from church services...
Then, he heads out to meet his dad for him to have the time to spend the day with him at work.
Luis' father works as a chef on an excursion boat, so he was able to spend the day with him on the boat, helping get the food ready and then enjoying the time in the ocean.
I did enjoy the book, as far as learning the day on the boat, but truthfully, I wish it would have had more time to focus on the day in Mexico.. Like maybe around town more (they do have Luis visit the market to buy vegetables on the way to the boat.)
I loved reading it to Broxton and having him learn about Peso's and Sea Lions... He enjoyed looking at the book with me to see the pictures and learn about Mexico.
The end of the book has two pages that tells more about Mexico and as in all the "I See The Sun" books, the story is written in both English and Spanish!
If you are looking to expand on cultures of the world with your children, I think that this is yet another book to enjoy reading together!
