While spending the year in Maine as an exchange-mouse, Miguelito is introduced to holidays celebrated in the United States. He learns about Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Valentine's Day, while sharing his own traditions about Christmas, Easter, and Independence Day. With each chapter, students learn holiday-specific vocabulary, as well as cultural and historical information. Also included in the book are reading activities, a complete vocabulary list, and easy-to-make Venezuelan recipes that your students can make at home or with the class. With illustrations by Peter Tracy.
