This is the bilingual (English/Spanish) version of The Best Mariachi in the World. The Spanish words for musical concepts are sprinkled in and as each word is introduced, it is used from there thru to the end of the book. There is also a vocabulary page at the end of the book.Everyone in Gustavo’s family is in a mariachi band. Everyone except Gustavo, that is. They all play violíns, trumpets and guitars. They all make wonderful music in restaurants and at wedding parties. Gustavo would love to join the band, but he can’t play any of the instruments. What's a wannabe marichi to do? Follow Gustavo as he finds his place in the family mariachi band.(Winner of the 2009 International Latino Book Awards – Best Children's Picture Book - 2nd Place)
