Hurray for Three Kings Day!

I like finding books that tell stories about the holidays, and today at the library I found a good one.

It's called "Hurrah for Three Kings' Day" by Lori Marie Carlson, and it gets extra points right off the bat for using an apostrophe so well in its title.

It's illustrated by Ed Martinez, and it's a story of three siblings walking round the neighborhood, playing at being the "tres reyes", and looking for the baby Jesus.

One of the things I liked about it was that it illustrated Epiphany traditions from Hispanic culture, and included some Spanish words. I want my kids to grow up knowing that the church is bigger than just their own country and language.

Anyway, I think this is going to be reread a lot in this house, at least till we hit Lent!

peace of Christ to you,
