" I enjoyed reading this story about Maria who lost her mother’s ring while making tamales and made her cousins help her eat all of the tamales to find it. It was simple, yet funny. I could see my students from South America appreciating and relating to the latino characters. I could also see myself, a teacher, using this story as a mentor text during a unit on narrative writing. " said.

" I liked this book. It was a cute story about a family who was making tamales for their family holiday gathering, maybe Christmas because there was a Christmas tree and presents. While making tamales, young Maria decides she wants to try her moms ring on, and thinks she looses it in the tamales! This story has a happy ending and a cute storyline. " said.

" We got this sweet little book from the library. Beautiful illustrations and a sweet story about children telling the truth to their parents ;) " said.

"It is the best time of the year; it is Christmas time! Maria, the main character of the story, is surrounded by her family on Christmas Eve which is when most Mexican families get together to celebrate Christmas with food and each others company. Maria's night takes an expected turn when she sees her mom's shiny, diamond ring, decides to try it on AND THEN helps makes tamales! What could go wrong?
I really enjoyed this story for the pictures were an amazing depiction on what goes on in the kitchen's of Mexican families during the holidays. The dresses that Maria and her cousins had on brought back itchy memories of having to wear those frilly dresses because it was a special occasion. Yet, having the dress on did not stop me from playing around and getting into sticky situations just like Maria did.
A great read to read during the holidays, or any other time of the year when you want to reminisce about the holidays with the family.

" One of my parents made tamales for the class, and I used it to introduce our lesson on measurements in math! The students totally enjoyed the tasting of their first tamale and was extremely interested to see how food could be tied to math! " said.

" This is a very cute story about a girl who makes a mistake and gets her cousins to try and help bail her out. Not too successfully - but nobody is hurt and nothing is lost. All's well that ends well. The illustrations are precious! Illustrator Ed Martinez captures the varied emotions that all the characters experience in a wonderful way that makes you feel like you are part of the family. " said.

" I really enjoyed reading this book. It was relatable. Not everyone makes tamales, but lots of people get together with families and the younger ones "get into trouble" (try on and lose the ring) and try to find a way to get out of it before the adults find out. I found my self smiling and laughing reading this book. I would recommend this book to be enjoyed by young readers. This book would be a lot of fun in the classroom! " said.
