Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!  What exactly is this holiday?  It is a celebration, primarily celebrated in the United States, that celebrates a specific military victory.  It isn't celebrated in Mexico.  It has come to signify a celebration of Mexican heritage.

Check out this great book, Off We Go to Mexico!  It's a great way to introduce your child to Mexico history, holidays and simple Spanish vocabulary.  You'll both love the beautiful pictures, and they'll appreciate the rhyming text.  It's great for kids ages 3 - 9!
