The story behind Cinco de Mayo
"Despite what many people believe, Cinco de Mayo isn't the day Mexico celebrates its independence. The holiday, celebrated on May 5 each year, actually commemorates the date Mexican troops defeated the French more than 150 years ago. In this book, readers will find more information about the history of Cinco de Mayo, including where and how it's celebrated around the world. Interestingly, it's a much bigger deal in the United States than in other countries, even Mexico! Colorful images bring the celebration to life on each page, drawing readers into the fascinating history of this Mexican holiday."
