Just a Minute: A Trickster Tale and Counting Book by Yuyi Morales

Just a Minute: A Trickster Tale and Counting Book - Cinco de Mayo Books and Mexico Culture for Kids
Cinco de Mayo Books for Kids - Just a Minute: A Trickster Tale and Counting Book

In this original trickster tale, Senor Calavera arrives unexpectedly at Grandma Beetle's door. He requests that she leave with him right away. "Just a minute," Grandma Beetle tells him. She still has one house to sweep, two pots of tea to boil, three pounds of corn to make into tortillas - and that's just the start! Using both Spanish and English words to tally the party preparations, Grandma Beetle cleverly delays her trip and spends her birthday with a table full of grandchildren and her surprise guest. This spirited tribute to the rich traditions of Mexican culture is the perfect introduction to counting in both English and Spanish. The vivacious illustrations and universal depiction of a family celebration are sure to be adored by young readers everywhere.
