?Biscochitos, bunuelos, and a pi?ata? for the ninth and last night of Las Posadas. This book is a Mexican story, so there are Spanish words in it. The pi?ata is a donkey like the one Mary rode on. It has whistles, candy, and toys, like we have in our pi?atas for birthday parties. I like the illustrations because they?re very bright and colorful. At my school, second graders act out Las Posadas and sing the song in Spanish. I played an angel.
I recommend this book for 4 to 8 year olds. This book could be a read aloud story for parents to read to little ones. Older kids can read it to younger kids. You should read this at Christmas time because it is about when Mary and Joseph went to Bethlehem. I think this book is great!
