Too Many Tamales - Cinco de Mayo Books for Kids
Cinco de Mayo Books for Kids - Too Many Tamales

Maria is making tamales and kneading the masa. All she wants is a chance to wear her mother's diamond ring, which sparkles temptingly on the kitchen counter. When her mother steps away, Maria seizes her opportunity and puts on the ring, then carries on with her work. Only later, when the tamales are cooled and a circle of cousins gathered, does Maria remember the diamond. She and the cousins search every tamale--with their teeth. Of course the ring turns out to be safely on Mom's finger.
