As Told By Littles | Too Many Tamales by Gary Soto

When I first borrowed Too Many Tamales the librarian told me it was a really good and highly recommended it. He was absolutely right. My son was so excited to read Too Many Tamales because tamales are his favorite food. The story was really cute and I could easily see one of my daughters doing something like Maria did. The illustrations were pretty good and they looked pretty realistic. Overall, I really enjoyed the story, as did my son. If you love tamales and want a good laugh you should read Too Many Tamales.
