Review by Ariadna Sánchez

Guacamole is a delicious dish that many people appreciate around the world. You can enjoy guacamole with: tortilla chips, tortas, tacos, burritos, sandwiches, carne asada, and the list goes on and on. Guacamole was made for the first time around the 16th century by the Aztecs. The ancient civilization gave the name of āhuacamolli to the “avocado sauce”. Generations have adored the unique taste of a green succulent bowl of guacamole in every meal making this dish a gem from the gods.

Young children can learn how to prepare a tasty avocado sauce by reading Guacamole written by Salvadorean award-winning author Jorge Argueta and gracefully illustrated by Mexican artist Margarita Sada. Preparing guacamole is a life learning experience that brings the Latino culture alive while savoring the delicious food. Children discover the benefits behind this mouthwatering dish as they cut and chop the green avocados. They enjoy the smell of the fresh cilantro, the scent of the lemon, and have fun when adding a few white sparkles of salt crystals.

The last stage of this process is to plant seeds. By planting them, Mother Earth will give more fruits and vegetables to be enjoyed by families and friends. Reading is a definitely a delicious adventure! Visit the nearest library for more healthy recipes. ¡Provecho!
