Celebrate Children's Day with a Book Sale!

Celebrate El día de los niños / El día de los libros (Children's Day / Book Day) with a special 50% discount off books purchased from Arte Público Press! This special offer is good on orders until April 30, 2012 for events celebrating El día de los niños / El día de los libros.

This sale is a great chance to pick up Adelita and the Veggie Cousins on the cheap! (Go ahead and collect other great titles from their catalog while you're at it!)

"On the first day of her new school, Adelita learns that vegetables can have similarities and differences, as can new friends. . . . The dual message of nutrition and diversity will probably find its place in today's curriculum and can certainly augment units on food, language and culture."
-Kirkus Reviews

"The last two pages have a recipe in both English and Spanish for the '1-2-3 Super Calabacita Soup.' The bold, colorful illustrations capture the action well."
-School Library Journal

To take advantage of this offer, call 1-800-633-ARTE or e-mail your order to bkorders@uh.edu. To see a sample of the book, click here.


Illustration Friday: Chicken

Mayte and the Bogeyman illustration by Christina Rodriguez

This week’s submission for Illustration Friday is from Mayte and the Bogeyman / Mayte y el Cuco. It shows the climactic scene between Mayte, her friend Pepito, and Don Apricio, where their misunderstanding culminates in loose chickens.  You can check out even more artwork from Mayte and the Bogeyman in these Illustration Friday posts.

Have a great weekend, everybody!


Illustration Friday: Sneaky

Mayte and the Bogeyman illustration by Christina Rodriguez.

This week’s Illustration Friday submission comes from the bilingual children’s picture book, Mayte and the Bogeyman / Mayte y el Cuco. Mayte and her best friend Pepito suspect Don Apricio is really “The Bogeyman” in disguise. Believing he is going to sell the “kidnapped child” in his burlap sack to the town butcher, they sneak behind him and try to stop his diabolical plan.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a nice weekend!
