Review; Too Many Tamales by Gary Soto

Just to have a bit of variation in the Christmas books, I decided to read the picture book Too Many Tamales by Gary Soto and today I'll post the review.

Description from Goodreads
Christmas Eve started out so perfectly for Maria. Snow had fallen and the streets glittered. Maria's favorite cousins were coming over and she got to help make the tamales for Christmas dinner. It was almost too good to be true when her mother left the kitchen for a moment and Maria got to try on her beautiful diamond ring . . .

This is the story of a treasure thought to be lost in a batch of tamales; of a desperate and funny attempt by Maria and her cousins to eat their way out of trouble; and the warm way a family pulls together to make it a perfect Christmas after all.

My Thoughts On the Book
It was a sweet and heartwarming read that easily can introduce a bit of Mexican culture to kids.
