In My Family / En mi familia by Carmen Lomas Garza

In My Family/En mi familia

I enjoyed learning a lot about Mexican traditions from reading this book. Carmen thinks back to wonderful memories of eating empanadas, witnessing the blessing of her cousin's wedding and dancing at a restaurant. At ThriftBooks, our motto is: Read More, Spend Less. In short order, Jose marries the lovely Maria Jennifer Lopez, Jenny Gago and they have two daughters. Garza also shared special events such as the blessing that the mother gives before her daughter gets married and a family trip to go see the Virgin of Guadalupe that had appeared on a water tank. Teachers can encourage them to share parts of their culture, just as Garza does. The spine may show signs of wear.

Lomas' main professor teased her about her problems with perspective. Pages can include considerable notes-in pen or highlighter-but the notes cannot obscure the text. The pictures are in full color and the memories are personal. She uses a lot of colorful paints which I believe does a good job of showing the vibrancy of the culture. These depictions touch on the importance of growing and sharing food, particularly in a reality of scarcity. There is no plot linking the various short stories and a such no problem to be solved by the characters. It depicts the stories and celebrations of Carmen and her family.

It really made me feel as though I were visiting Garza's home and experiencing her childhood alongside her. This book also talked about the Mexican culture and community. They establish their family in East L. After each student has finished making their poster, they can all share individually in front of their class so that students can understand more about their peers. Although I think the book is very interesting and does a very efficient job in representing other cultures, I think the illustrations are missing many elements.

All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. Teaching Point: I think this book would be a perfect book for an interactive read aloud for 1st graders. This a great for cultural diversity and could be used to talk about character, settings, differences ans similaritites in cultural celebrations. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. Through vibrant paintings and warm personal stories, Carmen brings to life more loving memories of growing up in a traditional Mexican American community: eating empanadas, witnessing the blessing on her cousin's wedding day, and dancing to the conjunto band at the neighborhood restaurant. The intersecting lives of the family are all well thought out, even though it all seems rather convenient they all have these different personas and political aspirations.
