Notes

Description
"Cynthia Weill scores again with an early concept book that bring every kind of job to life, including the work of the dedicated palm weavers of Flavio Gallardo's workshop, whose miniature palm weavings illustrate this playful book, teaching children words for work in two languages. The weavers live in the village of Chigmecatitlán in the Mixteca part of the Mexican state of Puebla. With tremendous skill and patience, the artisans of this region practice palm weaving, a craft which came to Mexico even before the arrival of the Spanish in the early 15th century. Imagine being able to hold all of the illustrations in one book in the palms of your hands. You can do that with the tiny weavings in Let's Work. Most pieces are no larger than a dime."-- provided by publisher.
Description
"Cynthia Weill una vez m̀s triunfa con un libro de primeros conceptos que trae a toda clase de trabajo a vida, incluyendo el trabajo de los tejedores de palmas del taller de Flavio Gallardo, cuyas tejidas de palma ilustran este alegre libro, ensę̀ndole palabras sobre el trabajo a nįos, en dos lenguas. Los tejedores viven en el pueblo de Chigmecatitl̀n en la parte Mixteca del pueblo mexicano de Puebla. Con estupenda habilidad y paciencia, los artesanos de esta regi̤n practican el tejido de palmas, un arte que vino a M̌xico antes que siquiera vinieran los espąoles en el siglo 15. Imagina poder tener en tus manos todas las ilustraciones, en un solo libro. Puedes hacer esto con los tejidos min︢sculos en Vamos a Trabajar! La gran parte de las piezas no son m̀s grande que una moneda!"-- provided by publisher.
