Just One Itsy Bitsy Little Bite

"I love pan de muerto," Joaqun says as he and his mother sit down to eat the special Mexican sweet bread prepared especially for the Day of the Dead. But someone knocks at the door just as they are about to take the first bite of the pastry.

Standing at the door is a hungry skeleton dressed in a mariachi suit who offers to sing Joaqun and his mother a song in exchange for just one itsy bitsy little bite of the sweet bread. It seems like a fair exchange, so they agree to share. But before the skeleton can begin singing, two more knock at the door and offer to play their accordions for just one bite of the bread. And then, three show up and want to play their guitars, four want to play their maracas and five want to dance"€"all for just one itsy bitsy little bite of the Mexican sweet bread!

Award-winning children's book author Xavier Garza collaborates with illustrator Flor de Vita to create an engaging introduction to numbers and the Mexican cultural traditions of the Day of the Dead, mariachi music and sweet bread. Children ages 4-8 will want to pair this entertaining book with their favorite pan dulce!

Las hermanas Calabozo

y el cachorro humano

Las hermanas calabozo han vivido tranquilamente en el pantano Pun pan pin, hasta que un día alguien deja un cachorro de humano en la puerta de su casa. 
¿Qué harán ahora las hermanas? ¿Se lo comerán o lo sembrarán? 
Ven y averigua que harán estas hermanas brujas con tan extraña criatura.
