I thought this was a beautifully illustrated book. I liked ho this book shares the Spanish culture and teaches children about their customs. The illustrations in this book really make the story. Every one of his books has the same beautiful illustration and its something a reader looks forward to. The pictures really tell a story. especially lighting the candle in the end. ( )

This book is about Christmas Eve being celebrated by a traditional play "Las Posadas". The couple who is supposed to play Mary and Joseph get stuck in a snow storm and Sister Angie, who runs the play every year, gets the flu and is unable to participate this year. It is by the grace of God that the play still goes on.

This book was interesting to read and learn about someone else's culture and how Christmas is celebrated. I would not say it was fun to read but I feel it was be okay to read to a class room to show how different cultures do things for holiday's.

Classroom ideas would be to have the kids say aloud what they do to celebrate Jesus's birth. They can learn how diverse people are this way. They can learn that there are other ways to celebrate things in life. ( )

I liked The Night of Las Posadas because of the mysteriousness in the story plot. While cultural and religious traditions may not be of interest to some students, the plot twist of the story may capture their attentions instead. Tomie DePaola’s illustrations are very detailed and colorful. Each page’s illustration represents a major point in the story. He also adds emotion to his illustrations as well. For example, one of the pages displays Sister Angie praying to Mary and Joseph with her hands in the air. I can infer from the picture that she is feeling a sense of contentment and blissfulness. ( )

In a little mountain village above Santa Fe, the community begins preparations for Las Posadas. Sister Angie is in charge of organizing the celebration and is proud that this year her Niece, Lupe and Lupe's new husband, Roberto, will portray Mary and Joseph. She tells the men playing the devils how to dress and what to do. Roberto is nervous about playing Joseph, so Sister Angie suggests they go to the see the wood carving of Maria and Jose at the church for inspiration.The wood carving includes a burro, but the town had stopped using a burro in the procession years ago. When the night of Las Posadas comes, Sister Angie comes down with the flu, and isn't able to attend the celebration. Lupe assures her Tia that they will make her proud. It begins to snow as the townspeople are busy making final preparations. Roberto and Lupe got stuck in the snow on their way to the village, and everyone anxiously wonders where they are. Suddenly a young couple with a burro show up, claiming to be friends of Sister Angie. They explain that Lupe and Roberto are stuck in the snow and that they have come to take their place in the procession. Father Vasquez gratefully begins the procession. The singers, candle bearers and devils all play their parts in the procession.When they arrive at the church, the mysterious couple vanishes, but Roberto and Lupe finally arrive, confused at hearing about the mysterious friends of Sister Angie. Sister Angie feels better and goes to the church to light a candle. When she places her candle by the carving, she sees wet footprints leading up to it and fresh snow on the clothes of Maria and Jose.

This is a good multiculturalism book. It is about an old Spanish custom in Santé Fe called Las Posadas, which celebrates Mary and Joseph seeking shelter in Bethlehem on Christmas Eve. Sister Angie is so proud because her family gets to be in it. They start practicing and getting ready for it. On the night of the play it starts to snow really bad. Roberto's pickup had been acting up and the snow did not help. His motor ended up dying. So he got out and Lupe stayed in the truck. He went to go get help. Meanwhile everyone is wondering where them two are at. But in the end they made it just on time and everything went well. Also in the back of the book it has a notes page where it tells all about Las Posadas.

Personal Response:
This was a great book. I have not heard about Las Posadas so it was interesting getting to read this. It had great pictures and it was a good story. I love how it had the notes in the back of the book to give someone that does not know anything about information. This would be a good book to read at Christmas time discussing different customs.

Classroom Extensions.
1. I would read this book around Christmas time when discussing different customs.
2. I would have them write a paper about how they do Christmas and their customs.
