Review: José's Mami has trouble with the food for Christmas dinner and is homesick for Puerto Rico. All the neighbors in José's apartment building are grumpy or harping on the hassles of the holidays. But when José and Papi bring home the salvaged, savory Christmas roast and neighbors are tantalized by its aroma and invited to dinner, a miracle happens! The true meaning of Christmas is presented with an ethnic twist and cheery outcome to be enjoyed by read-aloud or an emerging reader.
