The book that I used was: Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with the Mexican Hat Dance by Alma F. Ada & F. Isabel Campoy. The storybook is about children in school that are learning to do the Mexican hat dance for their Cinco de Mayo celebration, and it’s followed by the history of Cinco de Mayo.
After story time we had our craft session with dyed red, green and white rice for the children to make a Mexican flag.
For fun we had sombreros, ponchos, and maracas for a photo prop.
