About the Event

Like most young children, Mimí loves Christmas time, so much so that she doesn’t even mind the bitter cold. Mimí especially looks forward to her annual parranda, the Puerto Rican version of Christmas caroling, and her favorite food. But when she learns that her family won’t be able to go to Puerto Rico this year, Mimí decides to stay home in bed. Could it be that she’ll get her parranda after all?

Rich with Puerto Rican cultural traditions and complemented by vibrant illustrations, Mimí’s Parranda / La parranda de Mimí will have children ages 3-7 eagerly anticipating their own holiday traditions.
