Saint George and the Dragon -- retold by Margaret Hodges, Illustrated by Trina Schart Hyman. One of my favorite picture books, by one of my favorite illustrators. Hyman is the artist whose style I would most like to emulate, with her strong figure drawing, pen-and-ink and watercolor combo, fantastical dragons, and illuminated borders. This book is full of gorgeous detail in the margins.
Great children's book on Christian courage.

The Cazuela That the Farm Maiden Stirred by Samantha R. Vamos. This is the story of how the farm maiden and all the farm animals worked together to make the rice pudding that they serve at the fiesta. This story bubbles and builds just like the ingredients of the arroz con leche that everyone enjoys. Cleverly incorporating Spanish words, adding a new one in place of the English word from the previous page, this book makes learning the language easy and fun.
