Editorial Reviews

AWARDS: Communicators Award 1998, Telly Award, Recommended by Booklist (2/98) and School Library Journal (10/97), 1999 Parents' Choice Group Award

"Families of Mexico" documents a family from the port city of Veracruz. Hermaina's father and mother own an advertising agency, which her father manages. We see her mother teach a dance class at the city's cultural center, go food shopping, visit Hermaina's school, and follow her to her swimming lesson. Eight-year-old Brizia lives with her parents on her grandparents' farm. We visit her school and follow her and her friend as they visit the surrounding farms owned by her aunts and uncles, who are making tamales, harvesting cactus for salad, and sorting sesame seeds.

Format: VHS Tape
I have used this video in my elementary school Spanish classes for the last four years. It shows a balanced view of life in Mexico; the life of a middle class girl and that of a girl who lives in the country and whose family does not have much money. Two videos are included on the cassette. Each one begins with a girl getting up in the morning. We see them have breakfast, take showers (one of them with well water), go to school, the average day. Besides being fascinating to my students, the most important aspect of this film is that it makes no judgment about people, rich or poor. It comes highly recommended by this viewer.

Used in classroom unit on Mexico. It delightfully tells the story of two families in Mexico - their day-to-day activities.
Arrived promptly and in excellent condition.
