"May you hear salsa / and start to dance" intones this singable wish (music provided) to young Alicia, who spends her birthday walking through her Latino neighborhood and enjoying the good wishes of her community. This look at a birthday celebration through another culture's lens is welcome and the urban details well chosen, but the illustrations fail to give the grinning characters dimension.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-An urban setting forms the backdrop for a little girl who is celebrating her birthday. Alicia's mother guides her through streets where she is greeted by neighbors, shopkeepers, street vendors, and even taxi drivers. Expanding on the fantasy quality of the day, airplanes write a salutation in the sky and pigeons bow to the birthday girl. Finally, this perfect interlude is rounded out by a huge ice-cream cone from the Icey man and a party with her loving extended family. Watercolor illustrations paint a cheerful portrait of this largely Latino neighborhood. While this title doesn't break any new ground, it is an upbeat tale.-Rosalyn Pierini, San Luis Obispo City-County Library, CA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
