Summary
Mexico's intriguing history, culture and landscape are illuminated in this program about the life and heritage of Mexican Americans. Children learn how to say a few words in Spanish, take a tour of the Olvera Street market in Los Angeles -- the oldest Mexican-American market in the United States -- and learn how to make a colorful yarn painting. They'll also enjoy an animated folktale called The Great Race and sing along with the chorus to the Mexican folksong, "Cielito Lindo, " which means "beautiful sky."
