Cinco de Mayo (fifth of May) is one of the most celebrated days in the Mexican calendar, but few people know what it commemorates -- a decisive victory of the Mexicans against the invading French in the mid-nineteenth century. Drawing on historical sources and the photographic record of a contemporary reenactment, this book introduces children to this important, but little understood event.

Maria Cristina Urrutia is the publisher of Ediciones Tecolote, a prestigious Mexican publishing company whose books have won many international awards. She lives in Mexico City, Mexico.Rebeca Orozco is a Mexican author who has published both short stories and novels, but likes writing for children best.
