Cinco de Mouse-O!
by Judy Cox, illustrated by Jeffrey Ebbeler
Yum! Yum! A delicious beany, cheesy smell wakes up Mouse. He follows his nose down the street to a Cinco de Mayo festival. There, high in a tree, he spies a magnifica piñata. If only Mouse could get just one piece of candy from it. But danger is everywhere, from the stomping feet of dancers to Cat, who is planning a holiday fiesta of his own with Mouse on the menu. This is a great book to introduce the Cinco de Mayo holiday as well as a different culture. Have your students write a menu for a Cinco de Mayo fiesta. On paper, have students design a a piñata they would like to have at a celebration. Take your students on a virtual field trip of Mexico to introduce students to the culture and history of Mexico.
