    1. A 2006 Americas Commended Title.A story that takes place in Guatemala and is centered around Holy Week (Semana Santa). It tells the story of a young Chinese girl and her family who visit cousins in Guatemala and are involved in process of making intricate rugs. These rugs serves as gifts to the Holy procession. Loved the details and illustrations that share this tradition!
