Summaries
Library of Congress Summary
A little girl guides the reader through each step of a posada, a Hispanic holiday tradition celebrated on the nine nights before Christmas.
Main Description
A posada is an important Latino holiday tradition that happens all over the world on each of the nine nights before Christmas. There's a lot to do every night before the party can begin, and here a little girl guides us through each step--from putting out poinsettias to hanging the piata--as she counts to ten in English and Spanish. Young readers can follow along by counting the different items mentioned. An author's note at the end of the story further explains the origins of the posada. Sprinkled with Spanish vocabulary and filled with lively illustrations, this is a posada no one should miss!

Unpaid Annotation
Las posadas son una tradición importante para los Latinos que se llevan acabo las nueve noches antes de Navidad. Antes que pueda comenzar la fiesta, hay mucho que hacer - en este libro una niña nos guía por cada uno de los pasos - de colgar la piñata a poner las poinsetas mientras ella cuenta del uno al diez en ingles y español. Los jóvenes lectores pueden ir contando y mencionando los diferentes elementos de las posadas. Al final de cada historia, la autora explica el origen de la posada.
