    Rosita tends her family’s fruit and vegetable gardens in the hills of Oaxaca Mexico while her mama and papa sell their crops in the city Her parents need to sell fruits and vegetables and Rosita needs someone to help her with the gardening work Rosita dreams of winning the radish carving contest at The Night of the Radishes celebration so her family can use the prize money to hire extra help One day Rosita saves a bird from the jaws of her cat The bird just so happens to be a talking bird who gives her three magic seeds that instantly grow into jumbo radishes for her to carve into three beautiful “muchachas” At The Night of the Radishes celebration something miraculous happens to Rosita’s radish carvings Manning’s enchanting fantasy about a gifted young girl introduces readers to this delightful yet little known Mexican tradition The history of The Night of the Radishes contest and the Spanish glossary at the end make this book a valuable addition to multicultural and bilingual classroom studies Manning’s radiant watercolor illustrations portray the vivacious Mexican culture A bonus gallery containing 45 photos of elaborate radish carvings brings to life this unusual festival “Rosita and the Night of the Radishes” weaves magical realism and culture into an engaging fable about the power of imagination

    Rosita lives on a farm in the Mexican state of Oaxaca not far from the city of Oaxaca She helps her parents tend the farm and is sorrowed by how lonely she is when Mama and Papi take their produce into town and leave her to tend their fields If only she weren't an only child so the work could be shared and so she could go into town often and so she would have someone to keep her company besides that mean boy at the next farm overWell at least she will be able to go into town on December 23rd to take part in the annual radish carving contest After rescuing a bird from a cat Rosita is surprised to hear the bird thank her and dubious at the proffered reward three magic radish seeds Well the radishes that sprout look rather ordinary but they are at least fine radishes and they did grow overnight and the bird did talk soRosita carves the radishes and enters them in the contest She doesn't win the cash prize but the radishes do prove to be magical indeed and provide Rosita with a very happy endingThe book is illustrated by the author in a style resembling Mexican folk art and closes with color photographs of real life Oaxacan radish carvingsNote I was offered and accepted a review copy of this book Having reviewed it I intend to donate it to a local elementary school

    Rosita and the Night of the Radishes is a fictional tale based off of a real live event in Oaxaca MexicoThe character Rosita is a young girl who must take care of her family farm while her parents try to sell what farm goods they have raised They are poor farmers and Rosita enters the competition each year to try to help win money so her parents can hire helpThe tale tells how she gets to grow the radishes and the carving she does The ending is such a twist that I was surprised to see what actually happened Is it a good ending? Bad ending? Ah my readers you must get the book to knowTo me the whole story was a sweet and powerful take on dreaming about being better persistences hard work and courage I loved seeing the main character being a girl with all of these traits and The illustrations were uite bold and colorful They enhanced the already good story line and made it come to full lifeAt the end of the story it gave a brief history of the Night of the Radishes Again I was surprised to know that this is a real event that happens every year just before Christmas The end pages also include real photographs of the event To me that was really cool to see and a nice comparison to the fictional storyThis book is targeted for 3 8 year olds The younger set would enjoy being read to as the older children would enjoy reading the book I give this book a 5 star winDisclosure I received a copy of this book from the publisher The views expressed here are 100% my own and may differ from yours MM Hudson aka Naila Moon
