Read full description of the books:
Yesterday, I took a trip to the Library of Congress in DC and went to the Jefferson Library to see if I could read some of these Caldecott books that I’m not able to get through ILL. It was such a great day with many cool experiences. Security is pretty tight, but anyone can apply for a library card at the Library of Congress. I went online and filled out a pre request form and I made my photo ID today and I am considered a ‘Researcher’.
I got to go inside the Reading room that tourist can only see through one piece. I walked the stacks today. I also went up to the Rare books collections. That was a trip. You have to leave everything in a locker including pens. You fill out a request and they bring you this special tray to read the book with plus the heavy ropes to touch the books as little as possible and it will keep your pages open. I read two books there and this is one of them. It’s a 1938 Caldecott Honor book.
A very strange story that evokes mystery with a mysterious tone with dark jungles and pools. There is a boy about age 5 who is wise in his years and he looks like an angel. The stories are threads somewhat pulled loosely together. It is a most interesting story.
The colors of the art are rich and the faces are peaceful and quite beautiful. Diego with his hat looks like an angel with a halo. The text is very wordy and there is a lot of read. Typical of the 30s I have learned.
It starts out with Diego dreaming of asking hummingbirds how many hummingbirds did it take to make Montezuma’s robe. He is awoken before the answer is given and this causes him to want to sleep more. His friend Popo has him go looking for an iguana who knows all things but can’t speak all he knows. He has a pet Parrot Polly and there is a story about Polly. “Be kind to me, Pearls are in the Pool” is written on the piece of paper that came with Polly.
Polly finds the iguana. It is said that the iguana lived before man came to the forest. They found Polly’s pearls while his hummingbird question went unanswered. That is the best I can do with the plot.
Here are some quotes I enjoyed:
“Tzin-Tzun-Tzan is the city of hummingbirds”. I love that. It simply sounds magical. I want to go.
“It takes a wise one to catch a wise one.” Diego speaks this about his dad and the iguana and I think it shows his wisdom beyond his years.
“Everything must be free to live in its own home in its own way.” Mom says this to Diego when he loses the iguana.
I don’t know what to really make of the story accept I love the mystery it whips up and the angelic look of Diego and his guru presence. He captivates me. I did enjoy this book. If you can get if from a library, you should.
