Publisher's Summary:
Through the magic windows of her cut-paper art, Garza shows us her family, her life as an artist, and the legends of her Aztec past. In her third book, Magic Windows/Ventanas magicas, Carmen Lomas Garza takes readers on a fascinating journey that explores her family, community, and ancestors through the traditional folk art form of papel picado (cut-paper art). Children catch a glimpse of the hummingbirds that carry the souls of the ancestors; look into the artist's studio and see her paint a Mexican jarabe tapatmo dancer; and watch her teach her nieces and nephews how to make their own magic windows. The textis in Spanish and English.
