Three Pockets Full: A story of love, family, and tradition
RELEASING 7/1/2022 FROM CARDINAL RULE PRESS
Beto won’t wear a guayabera to the wedding. Nope! Nunca! Not going to happen! Beto tries his best to rid himself of the traditional Mexican wedding shirt his Mami gave him. He even gets help from his dog Lupe, but the shirt ends up back on his bed each time with notes from Mami, who becomes increasingly frustrated with Beto. Mami insists that Beto attend the wedding, and wear the shirt, because—after all—it’s her wedding! Beto has to accept the fact that Mami is getting remarried and that she wants him to wear the shirt, which is part of his heritage. The best book for exploring family, change, and new experiences.
Three Pockets Full by Cindy L. Rodriguez carries key concepts of family, love, and tradition. This book goes along well with other books on change and the emotions that can come with it. Like the work of Todd Parr (The Family Book) and Patrice Karst (The Invisible String).
This book comes with a Reader’s Guide for children, a free download from the publisher website. Lesson plans, activities, and discussion questions allow parents, teachers, and caregivers to explore the topics further and deepen comprehension.
