Mario and Baby Gia (Mario Lopez) - Mario is having a hard time finding someone to play with. His sister, Marissa, is playing with Cousin Rosie, and his cousin Chico is off to baseball practice. When Nana asks Mario to babysit his cousin Gia while she bakes, he finds that babies can be a handful. But even when he feels that he has reached the end of his rope, it is baby Gia who reminds Mario that a family is built on love and caring. Recommended for ages 4-8.
Mario Sanchez: Better Than Ever (Nance Frank) - A celebration of the life and work of Key West artist Mario Sanchez (1908-2005) with 54 full-color reproductions of his painted relief carvings. His art showing street vendors, parades, rumba bands, cigar factories, ice-cream trucks, people out for a stroll has become symbolic of the picturesque diversity of Key West life in the 20th century. Recommended for ages 9-12.
Mario's Angels: A Story About the Artist Giotto (Mary Arrigan) - Young Mario wants to help the painter Giotto, and since the artist paints such realistic figures, Mario thinks he would like to pose. When a monk tells Giotto that something is missing from the sky in a picture the artist is working on, Giotto becomes upset. Mario has plenty of ideas about what to add--sunrise, clouds, rain--but Giotto rejects them all. Later, when Mario watches his father pick up baby Bianca, the family's little angel child, Mario gets the best idea of all--angels. Giotto is thrilled, and since he needs a model, who else but Mario? The watercolor artwork, cheery and child-friendly throughout, becomes more sophisticated in the representations of Giotto's pictures. Enhanced by appended information about frescoes, this makes a solid introduction to Giotto, his art, and beyond, but the nicest thing about it is that it's a good story, too. Recommended for ages 4-8.
