Green is a Chile Pepper: A Book of Colors
Cultural traditions can be joyful, delicious, and colorful!
Join the party with this Mexican family and learn how all the colors of the rainbow fit into their lives.
Green is a chile pepper, spicy and hot. Green is cilantro inside our pot.
In this lively picture book, children discover a world of colors all around them: red is spices and swirling skirts, yellow is masa, tortillas, and sweet corn cake. Many of the featured objects are Latino in origin, and all are universal in appeal.
With rich, boisterous illustrations, a fun-to-read rhyming text, and an informative glossary, this playful concept book will reinforce the colors found in every child's day!
