Parranda (English: party or spree), (plural, "parrandas") are a Puerto Rican music tradition that takes place in Puerto Rico during the Christmas holiday season. Parrandas are social events that feature traditional Puerto Rican music, food, and drinks. They are associated with pride for the customs of the traditional Puerto Rican jíbaro. The traditional events have been likened to Christmas caroling, but the contents of the songs are secular rather than religious

Really good illustrations and cute story.

Perfect introduction for young kids to learn what a parranda is all about. Read it to my daughter's preschool class, followed by our own parranda in the classroom.

Qué chévere! You don't have to be Puerto Rican to read this delightful children's book and reminisce about how Christmas was celebrated in your own country, city or town of origin. The author and illustrator give us all a wonderful opportunity to share our favorite Christmas family traditions with our children. Educationally, this book would be useful in bilingual classes where children could discuss family traditions around holidays, be it parrandas or posadas, etc. Teachers could bring some of the desserts featured to class for a taste of Caribbean cooking. The children could learn how to make instruments for their own parranda, as is suggested in the book. I, for one, loved the drawing of "Mimí" with her long wavy hair dreaming of parrandas and delicious desserts. Bravo!

My daughters, 3 and 5, are pretty tough customers when it comes to new books, but all of us were enchanted by Mimi's Parranda. The book has everything you would want--a moving storyline, vivid details, and an introduction (for some of us) to a new world, that of the parranda. I hope to read more from this author, and I know my daughters agree. They ask to read this every night, and of course want their own parranda!
