Description

Beto won't wear a guayabera to the wedding. Nope! Nunca! Not going to happen! Beto tries his best to rid himself of the traditional Mexican wedding shirt his Mami gave him. He even gets help from his dog Lupe, but the shirt ends up back on his bed each time with notes from Mami, who becomes increasingly frustrated with Beto. Mami insists that Beto attend the wedding, and wear the shirt, because--after all--it's her wedding! Beto has to accept the fact that Mami is getting remarried and that she wants him to wear the shirt, which is part of his heritage.

This is the story of Beto. His mother wants him to wear a traditional 4 pocket guayabera wedding shirt. He tries everything to get out of wearing this shirt. He really doesn’t want to wear the shirt because his mother is marrying David and he is missing his father. She assures him that his father will always be a part of this family. Will he end of wearing the shirt. Read to find out.

I loved this diverse book. It gave the reader before, while, and after reading tips. It has several forms of writing-lettter, and notes. It explains all about a guayabera shirt, which was really neat to learn about. I can’t wait to get a copy of this book to share with my first grader!

I thought this was an adorable book about a cultural tradition that is Mexican/Cuban. A little boy is asked to wear a special Mexican Wedding Shirt called a Guayabera. The mother tells him how important it is for her to wear this shirt which turns out to be her wedding. The illustrations are very colorful and attractive and should appeal to all readers. I am always looking for diverse books that promote joy and families. This is a wonderful addition.
