Product Description
This resource is a Christmas-themed unit with over 25 pages of activities to go along with the heartwarming story of Too Many Tamales, by Gary Soto. In the story, the main character, Maria, helps her mother make tamales for Christmas. When her mom steps out of the room, Maria tries on her mother's ring, and then goes back to kneading the masa. Later in the story, she realized she forgot about her mother's ring and thought it was hidden inside one of the 24 tamales! In an effort to find the ring, she and her cousins must eat all of the tamales!

This story is a wonderful way to share the Christmas traditions of the Hispanic culture, while touching on the importance of family and honesty.
