The author, Elizabeth Coatsworth, was known as an international traveler, which influenced her writing. This is reflected in this seven-chapter young adult novel as the main character (Daisy) visits Mexico with her parents and older sister (Emily). Daisy discovers the Mexican culture. Some of her Christmas-time vacation experiences include visiting: (1) the church in Mexico City which houses the Virgin of Guadalupe, (2) the church that tops the great pyramid of Cholula in Pueblo, and (3) Monte Alban in Oaxaca. A young adult would need to have some general knowledge of Spanish terminology / customs to fully appreciate this novel.
