The Night of Las Posadas


This wonderful story, with Tomie dePaola’s glorious paintings, captures the spirit and beauty of this southwestern Christmas tradition. Christmas Eve in Santa Fe is celebrated by the traditional procession Las Posadas. Sister Angie arranges for the people of a nearby mountain village to re-enact Mary and Joseph’s search for shelter the night baby Jesus was born. The whole village has been practicing for weeks. Everything is going to be perfect. But when Sister Angie becomes sick and the couple who are playing Mary and Joseph get stuck in a snowstorm, only a miracle will save Las posadas. Accompanies Lesson 32 of Sonrisas Level I and Lesson 4 of Sonrisas Cultural Curriculum. (8.5 x 11)
