Synopsis

Let Me Help! / Quiero Ayudar! by Alma Flor Ada

Let me help! Let me help! Perico learns this phrase from little Martita, who's been saying it a lot lately. When the whole family scrambles to prepare for Cinco de Mayo, Perico knows there must be some way he can help -- even if he is just a parrot. Perico tries to help abuela make delicious tamales. He tries to help craft beautiful paper flowers for the barge his family will take down the San Antonio river. He even tries to help the boys practice their mariachi number on the porch. But at every turn Perico is shooed away, until he finally figures out how he can add to the Cinco de Mayo fun. Acclaimed children's book author Alma Flor Ada's tale is the story of every young reader who has been told he or she is too little or too young to help. Angela Dominguez's vibrant paintings glow with the rich colors of the southwest. Let Me Help!/Quiero ayudar! is a joyful, rhythmic, read-aloud you can celebrate year-round.
