‘Twas Nochebuena by Roseanne Greenfield Thong

‘Twas Nochebuena is a bilingual retelling of “The Night Before Christmas.” The story takes readers into the home of a Latin American family during their Christmas Eve feast of Nochebuena. This family story conveys strong family bonds and traditions while offering non-Spanish speakers a way to learn some basic Spanish vocabulary.

In ‘Twas Nochebuena the family makes tasty tamales and hang colorful adornos (decorations) on the walls. They gather to sing festive canciones (songs) while sipping champurrado (hot chocolate). After the midnight feast has been served and the last gifts have been unwrapped, it’s time to cheer, “Feliz Navidad and to all a good night!”
