SUMMARY ↠ Snapshots from the Wedding (Paperstar Book) G big tears; Uncle Trino jump starting a car in his tuxedo; and Rafael the groom with a cast on his arm Of course the big day also includes games dancing cake and a mariachi band that plays long i Literature Reuirement 1998 Belpre illustrator AwardWhat an incredibly uniue book This is definitely deserving of the Belpre award for illustrations simply based on the approach this book used The illustrations are 3D created in what seems to be a box on each page Some scenes are gold framed while others are simply contained within the outside perimeter of the box The amount of detail used in the scenes is amazing and I m very impressed with the level of creativity jam packed into this 32 page book The story is told through picture captions essentially It s very brief but there is a lot to understand about the wedding even with the limited perspective The flower girl is our narrator and she had some silly touches to add to the story for example during the reception she puts olives on her fingers wiggles them around and then eats them The writing is very child like but that does not detract from anything If anything it contributes to the story becomes readable by younger children The language is not too complicated though there is some Spanish There is no translation offered so a child who does not know Spanish might struggle with a couple pages in the book It s not too much of a deterrent in the end but it might cause some curiosity to emerge
