Abstract:

Exciting adventures appear at every turn as children are introduced to the seven colorful countries of Central America. They'll see what it's like to live there and how immigrants from those countries have brought their traditions to North America. Everyone learns how to say a few words and count to ten in Spanish. A field trip takes children to a shop where beautiful Guatemalan weavings are sold, and they also visit a Salvadoran grocery for a view of chiles, tortillas, rice and other treats from Central America. Next, they watch an animated Mayan folktale call the The Chirimia, learn how to make a decorative weaving then sing "El Torito Pinto", a folksong about a baby bull.
