My daughter, my son, the eagle the dove: an Aztec chant
Both a blessing to a child and a tribute to parenthood, this keepsake book by renowned Chicana poet and author Ana Castillo was inspired by ancient Aztec chants. In words and pictures, the book's two sections--one for a daughter and one for a son--trace the milestones of growing up and reflect parental joy and pride in the process. Like an illuminated manuscript in a new-world context, the illustrations by S. Guevara stylistically combine Aztec elements with strong contemporary images on tree bark, fusing a rich design with powerful, vibrant text. Ideal as a gift to commemorate a variety of momentous events in an older child's life--graduation, an important birthday, a quincea'era, or a family occasion--My Daughter, My Son, the Eagle, the Dove is startlingly relevant and shows the universality of rites of passage.
