Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Today is Cinco de Mayo, a holiday in Mexico, which is a celebration of the day on which the Mexican militia defeated the French army at The Battle Of Puebla in 1862.

Here's a fun picture book to share with the kids in your life: Cinco de Mouse-O! by Judy Cox [JP COX].
Mouse wants to celebrate the Cinco de Mayo festival with just one piece of candy from a magnífica piñata, but Cat has plans of his own!

Yum! Yum! A delicious beany, cheesy smell wakes up Mouse. He follows his nose down the street to a Cinco de Mayo festival. There, high in a tree, he spies a magnífica piñata. If only Mouse could get just one piece of candy from it. But danger is everywhere, from the stomping feet of dancers to Cat, who is planning a holiday fiesta of his own with Mouse on the menu.
TV cook Paula Deen's book, Paula Deen Celebrates!: Best Dishes and Best Wishes for the Best Times of Your Life [641.568 DEE], devotes a whole chapter to a "Cinco de Mayo Fiesta." There are recipes for "Macho Nachos," "Arroz Con Tomate," "Margarita Mousse," and more to spark up your day today!
