    A weak message.

    This was a tender and highly satisfying book. If I had liked the illustrations better, it might even have earned 5 stars! As it is, I appreciate the emphasis on family and community and the hope and optimism it presents. It doesn't ignore poverty or say that crime is okay, but it does show that there can be forgiveness and that sometimes people really do just need a helping hand to get them back on their feet. With a rich culture backdrop and use of simple Spanish words and phrases interspersed in the text, it's a wonderful book to read with kids who are unfamiliar with both. It was one of the few books on lemons I could find for my unit on that fruit, but it was by far the best. Highly recommended.

    My almost-five-year-old son checked this book out from the library earlier this week. Interestingly, a few days before, he told a story about a lemon-yellow moon, so I think the artwork on the cover attracted him. The artwork on the cover, and in the rest of this book, is attractive. Actually, I would go so far as to say it is soft and beautiful, too. The story also is lovely, and well-told. This book did not hold my son's interest but that is because I think the story was a little "too old" for him; there was nothing wrong with the text. In another year, I'm sure my little boy will find this story as lovely as I did.

    Someone is stealing lemons from Rosalinda's lemon tree. She seeks the help of a guardian angel to help and she eventually appears, after Rosalinda discovers a man at the market selling her lemons to help feed his family with little children. Rosalinda follows the advice of the angel under a full moon and the lemon tree bears lots of fruit. She gives all the lemons away to her neighbors, and one to the man who stole her fruit. She advises him to plant the seeds. He is grateful and she feels good that she has helped a family in need.

    I thought this was a great book, but I also don't know if it would keep a child's attention very long. Although, it does send a great message. When someone is stealing lemons from her tree, she sets out to fix the problem. Rosalinda ends up fixing the problem and in the end gets all of her lemons back, but is very generous and gives them away to people. The story is unique and the illustrations are very attractive and colorful. I like how it contains a little bit of Spanish as well.

    When by magic lemons return to her lemon tree, a little girl redeems her initial loss with generosity. The illustrations give a beautiful view of life in Mexico.
