"'Today is my birthday, and I am so excited. / One pinata filled with candy. / Two hours until the party. / Three tables set for all of the guests.' Mateo counts to twelve as he anticipates the fun he'll have at his party!<br><br>There will be family, friends and lots of goodies for the children: tops, marbles and even toy cars! But before the children can hit the pinata, they will sing the birthday boy a song and enjoy eating a delicious cake. And then Mateo will be "the happiest boy in the whole wide world," because he gets to swing at the pinata first with everyone cheering him on: Dale! Dale! Dale!<br><br>Acclaimed kids' book author Rene Saldana, Jr. creates another winner with his first picture book, illustrated in vibrant colors by Carolyn Dee Flores, for children ages 4 to 8. Kids will relish practicing their counting skills while dreaming about hitting a pinata at their very own fun-filled fiesta."
