A little girl chef dons her apron, singing and dancing around the kitchen as she shows us what to do. Argueta's gift in seeing beauty, magic and fun in everything around him makes this book a treasure -- avocados are like green precious stones, salt falls like rain, cilantro looks like a little tree and the spoon that scoops the avocado from its skin is like an excavating tractor. As in the previous cooking poems, "Guacamole" conveys the fun and pleasure of making something delicious and healthy to eat for people you really love.
