Hurray for Three Kings' Day!

Lori Marie Carlson, Author, Ed Martinez, Illustrator HarperCollins Publishers $16 (32p) ISBN 978-0-688-16239-9
Radiant oil portraits reflect the affection of a close-knit family and community in this fluid tale of the Latino celebration of Epiphany. Carlson draws on several traditions--Venezuelan, Puerto Rican and Mexican--as she tells how one family commemorates the journey of the wise men, the children going door to door to ask where they can find the baby, then joining the procession through town. At home, there are gifts and feast day foods and, best of all, Anita finds the tiny clay doll inside the honey cake and is crowned reina, or queen, of the festivities. Ages 4-8. (Oct.)
