This question-and-answer book contains 400 reminders of what is known and what is sometimes forgotten or misunderstood about a city that was founded more than 400 years ago. Not a traditional history book, this group of questions is presented in an apparently random order, and the answers occasionally meander off topic, as if part of a casual conversation.

Tag along with Rosita the Roadrunner on her journey to learn about the Land of Enchantment. On the trail, meet Roja & Verde (the Chile Twins), Biscochita (a Smart Cookie), Pinon Jay, Dusty the Tumbleweed, and a town full of prairie dogs who love to read. READiscover New Mexico, a recent theme for the Statewide Summer Reading Program sponsored by the New Mexico State Library, encourages the discovery of the vast cultural, natural, historical, and literary treasures found in our beautiful state. Children, adults and families experience some of these for the very first time by visiting Rosita's ultimate source for information: the library. Featured is a literal example of "poetic license," with an introduction by "Tag" the license plate. Join the fun! Children will love coloring the cast of characters and sharing the adventure with their families. Among many classroom uses, teachers can present the fun story as a bi- or tri-lingual playlet. Enrichment material includes a compilation of the programs, activities, crafts, song parodies, celebrations, and bibliographies devised by the children's librarians who brought READiscover New Mexico to life in public libraries throughout the state. Also featured are riddles, New Mexico trivia, relevant websites, an extensive booklist, several recipes for Biscochitos, instructions for making Star-O-Litos, and a large collection of reproducible artwork. Rosita's Ramble is presented in English, Spanish, and Navajo. Welcome! Bienvenidos! Ya'at'eeh! Author KATHY BARCO was Youth Services Coordinator at the New Mexico State Library from 2001-2006. Currently a children's librarian with the Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Public Library, she received the 2006 Leadership Award from the New Mexico Library Association. She is co-author (with Valerie Nye) of "Breakfast Santa Fe Style - A Dining Guide to Fancy, Funky and Family Friendly Restaurants." Designer/Illustrator MIKE JAYNES, a Seattle-based graphic artist, has designed and illustrated six summer reading programs for the New Mexico State Library. Both Kathy and Mike grew up in Los Alamos, New Mexico."

This critical account of the American Girl brand explores what its books and dolls communicate to girls about femininity, racial identity, ethnicity, and what it means to be an American. Emilie Zaslow begins by tracing the development of American Girl and situates the company’s growth and popularity in a social history of girl power media culture. She then weaves analyses of the collection’s narrative and material representations with qualitative research on mothers and girls. Examining the dolls with both a critical eye and a fan’s curiosity, Zaslow raises questions about the values espoused by this iconic American brand.
