Our Celebracion! is a delightfully cultural book to be shared with all. Come and join the happy celebration. The whole town is celebrating with a parade and festivities for all. Firetrucks, a band with trumpets, and bicycle and unicycle riders all are found in the parade, but what happens when it starts to rain? The people of the town look at the bright side–the rain has cooled down the hot summer day and they can still enjoy all the fun the celebration has to offer including balloon animals and ice cream. Finally, the rain goes away and a rainbow appears just in time for families to enjoy the fireworks as the finale to the celebration.
This book has wonderfully colorful illustrations and very diverse illustrations that depict many different races, as well as different family types and individuals with varying abilities. The book is in English but has Spanish words sprinkled throughout the text to help those just learning Spanish or for those who want to learn more. The book also has a glossary in the back with the Spanish words and their meaning. This is a wonderful book to share with others to learn about different cultures.
