Family Pictures is the story of Carmen Lomas Garza's girlhood: celebrating birthdays, making tamales, finding a hammerhead shark on the beach, picking cactus, going to a fair in Mexico, and confiding to her sister her dreams of becoming an artist. These day-to-day experiences are told through fourteen vignettes of art and a descriptive narrative, each focusing on a different aspect of traditional Mexican American culture. The English-Spanish text and vivid illustrations reflect the author's strong sense of family and community. For Mexican Americans, Carmen Lomas Garza offers a book that reflects their lives and traditions. For others, this work offers insights into a beautifully rich community.

So feiert man Feste in Mexiko: Die mexikanische Malerin Carmen Lomas Garza erzählt auf zwölf Bildtafeln fröhliche Geschichten aus ihrer Kindheit und gewährt uns einen farbenfrohen Einblick in das Alltagsleben und wichtige kulturelle Höhepunkte dieser lebensfrohen Gesellschaft Zentralamerikas. Wie feiern diese temperamentvollen Menschen dort Geburtstag, Hochzeit oder Weihnachten? Auf jeden Fall darf an keinem Geburtstagsfest die Piñata fehlen, ein Gefäss oder eine Figur aus Ton, Karton oder Papier, die mit Süssigkeiten und allerlei Überraschungen gefüllt ist. Was wird bei diesen Gelegenheiten besonders gerne gegessen? Empanadas, Tacos und Tamales natürlich. Die Rezepte für diese typisch mexikanischen Speisen laden uns im Anhang zum Ausprobieren ein. Diese zweisprachige Bilderkulturreise öffnet uns eine fremde Welt, die weit von uns entfernt liegt und uns kaum vertraut ist. Ab 5 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Silvia Zanetti
