Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Cinco de Mayo is in remembrance of a battle between the Mexican and French armies, a battle fought and won by the Mexicans to gain their independence. Today, people celebrate this day to remember the courage and spirit of the Mexican people.

Cinco de Mayo—Count and Celebrate!, written for elementary readers by Frederick L. McKissack, Jr. and Lisa Beringer McKissack, helps readers learn to count to ten in Spanish, while also helping them explore this holiday through symbols, people, and more.
