Un Libro de Pinturas de la Revolucion de Mexico (A Book of Drawings of Mexico's Revolution).
Scenes from the Mexican Revolution are featured in this short booklet for Spanish speaking children in the elementary grades. These supplementary reading materials were developed by a student in the Mesa Community College Bilingual Teacher Aide Program. Both the language and content are intended to provide linguistically and culturally sensitive materials relevant to the experience of the Chicano child of the Southwest. The captioned illustrations of the booklet center around Miguel Hidalgo and refer to him as the father of Mexico. The material includes a map of Mexico, a picture of Hidalgo, and scenes related to the revolution itself. Hidalgo's incarceration and execution are also included in the narrative. A final scene shows the Mexican flag with a caption stating that many people died so that we would be able to have liberty. (DS)
