Count Me In

Resumen del libro

libro Count Me In

Practice your numbers in English and Spanish when you count the beautiful dancers, playful musicians, and happy children of Oaxaca as the Guelaguetza parade goes by! Pronounced Gal-a-get-zah, the lively celebration—full of traditional dancing and music—takes place every July deep in the heart of southern Mexico. ONE band leader with a big white balloon! DOS hombres with firecrackers! THREE musicians! FOUR giants! All exquisitely handcrafted by the Mexican folk art masters Guillermina, Josefina, Irene, and Concepción Aguilar, in collaboration with author and scholar Cynthia Weill. Bienvenidos! Welcome to the parade! Cynthia Weill is a professor and mentor to teachers at Columbia Universitys Teachers College. She also owns a non-profit—Aid to Women Artisans—that promotes the craftwork of artisans from developing countries. Count Me In is her fourth book in the First Concepts in Mexican Folk Art Series. The Aguilar sisters are Mexicos most beloved artisans. They learned how to make clay figurines from their mother Doña Isaura. These lively independent women are considered great masters of Mexican folk art and have been visited by Queen Elizabeth, Queen Sofia of Spain, various Mexican presidents, and Nelson Rockefeller. Their humorous ceramics of the people of their town and state are in museum collections the world over.

    Welcome to the Family! Its just like yours: father, mother, sister, brother, abuelita, gato. Well, but, theres something just a little bit different about this family. Maybe its those clothes they wear... just a little bit fashion backward. And the colors! So vibrant and... lively. Maybe thats what it is. They are just so full of life. Familia-life from a Day of the Dead perspective! --
