On May 5, 1862, a small group of Mexican forces defeated a powerful French army at the Battle of Puebla, one of history’s most memorable fights for freedom. It is this victory that Mexicans, especially those settled in the United States, celebrate as Cinco de Mayo, (Fifth of May). Colorful parades, music, folk dances, and reenactments of the famous battle mark the celebrations.

Cinco de Mayo

“This series will be a welcome addition to primary classes which are taking a beginning look at different cultures and their celebrations. The large print and colourful illustrations make the books accessible to very young readers on an individual basis or in large group situations.” —Resource Links, 02/09 “Interesting and informative, the volumes in this series will not only help children to better understand other cultures but also to celebrate diversity. Recommended.” —CM Magazine, 12/08
