ALA Booklist
Without the cut-paper accent images but otherwise in the same format as her first book, Family Pictures/Cuadros de familia (1990), Lomas Garza uses her narrative paintings to relate her memories of growing up in Kingsville, Texas, near the Mexican border, and to reflect her pride in her Mexican American heritage. The artist portrays everyday events as well as special moments of family history in crisply colorful, vibrantly peopled paintings and provides brief, bilingual background stories for each of the 13 paintings. Another sparkling family album that lovingly shares the artist's memories of the Hispanic cultural experience as lived in the Southwest. (Reviewed November 1, 1996)
Horn Book
Many Mexican-American traditions, beliefs, and customs are reflected in the portraits created in words and pictures of one family's life in a Texas town near the Mexican border. Stylized paintings in bold color fill the right-hand pages of each double-page spread. The illustrations and careful placement of the bilingual text augment the sympathetic tone and gentle insight of this albumlike book.
