El Barrio by Debbie Chocolate, Illustrated by David Diaz
This colorful picture book serves as a very positive introduction to life in the barrio. He talks about different celebrations and experiences from first communion to his sister's quinceanera.
I love David Diaz's illustrations that seem to be a combination of woodcut or linoleum prints and collage.
This simple book would be a good one for the preschool set.
