“The first time I walked

With a girl, I was twelve,

Cold, and weighted down

With two oranges in my jacket.

December. Frost cracking

Beneath my steps, my breath

Before me, then gone,

As I walked toward

Her house, the one whose

Porch light burned yellow

Night and day, in any weather.

A dog barked at me, until

She came out pulling

At her gloves, face bright

With rouge. I smiled,

Touched her shoulder, and led

Her down the street, across

A used car lot and a line

Of newly planted trees,

Until we were breathing

Before a drugstore. We

Entered, the tiny bell

Bringing a saleslady

Down a narrow aisle of goods.

I turned to the candies

Tiered like bleachers,

And asked what she wanted -

Light in her eyes, a smile

Starting at the corners

Of her mouth. I fingered

A nickle in my pocket,

And when she lifted a chocolate

That cost a dime,

I didn’t say anything.

I took the nickle from

My pocket, then an orange,

And set them quietly on

The counter. When I looked up,

The lady’s eyes met mine,

And held them, knowing

Very well what it was all

About. .Outside,

A few cars hissing past,

Fog hanging like old

Coats between the trees.

I took my girl’s hand

In mine for two blocks,

Then released it to let

Her unwrap the chocolate.

I peeled my orange

That was so bright against

The gray of December

That, from some distance,

Someone might have thought

I was making a fire in my hands.” - Gary Soto #garysoto

The first time I walked
With a girl, I was twelve,
Cold, and weighted down
With two oranges in my jacket.
December. Frost cracking
Beneath my steps, my breath
Before me, then gone,
As I walked toward
Her house, the one whose
Porch light burned yellow
Night and day, in any weather.
A dog barked at me, until
She came out pulling
At her gloves, face bright
With rouge. I smiled,
Touched her shoulder, and led
Her down the street, across
A used car lot and a line
Of newly planted trees,
Until we were breathing
Before a drugstore. We
Entered, the tiny bell
Bringing a saleslady
Down a narrow aisle of goods.
I turned to the candies
Tiered like bleachers,
And asked what she wanted -
Light in her eyes, a smile
Starting at the corners
Of her mouth. I fingered
A nickel in my pocket,
And when she lifted a chocolate
That cost a dime,
I didn't say anything.
I took the nickel from
My pocket, then an orange,
And set them quietly on
The counter. When I looked up,
The lady's eyes met mine,
And held them, knowing
Very well what it was all
About.
.
Outside,
A few cars hissing past,
Fog hanging like old
Coats between the trees.
I took my girl's hand
In mine for two blocks,
Then released it to let
Her unwrap the chocolate.
I peeled my orange
That was so bright against
The gray of December
That, from some distance,
Someone might have thought
I was making a fire in my hands.

A family favorite from my childhood, #TooManyTamales (by #GarySoto, illustrated by #EdMartinez). We were first exposed to this in a December issue of Spider Magazine, and then my sister asked for it for Christmas one year (surprisingly, as she was not a book-lover!) In this story, Maria stealthily tries on her mother’s diamond ring while making tamales and fears that it is lost inside one of them. She enlists her cousins to help in a way, well, kids would, and chaos ensues! When í was younger, í always thought the family took the whole situation a little TOO much in stride. As an adult, í like how understanding they are, though í kind of wish they had more of a discussion about it - maybe that’s a little too Full House of me. Regardless, this book is a treasure to me, not only because of childhood memories but because it preserves the pre-teen Christmas fashions from my childhood impeccably! It has stuck with my family to this day, so much so that a few months ago she sent me a picture of it apropos of nothing. Í asked what made her think of it and she said she was at dinner with some cousins and they had been passing my newly-engaged cousin’s ring around the table 😂 #ChildrensLiterature #ChildrensBooks #PictureBooks #KidsBooks #BooksForKids #BooksForChildren #KidLit #ChildrensBookIllustration #PictureBookIllustration #BookIllustration #Illustration #BookCollector #BookCollection #ChildrensBookCollection #ChildrensBookCollector #Bookworm #Bibliophile #Bookstagram #ChildrensLit #ChristmasBooks #ChildrensChristmasBooks #ChristmasBooksForKids #ChristmasIllustration #ChristmasPictureBooks #MulticulturalChildrensBooks #MulticulturalChristmasBooks #MulticulturalChildrensChristmasBooks

Day 2: Oranges by Gary Soto

A dog barked at me, until
She came out pulling
At her gloves, face bright
With rouge. I smiled,
Touched her shoulder, and led
Her down the street, across
A used car lot and a line
Of newly planted trees,
Until we were breathing
Before a drugstore.

Today's #successfullatino is the Mexican-American writer Gary Soto! He was born Gary Anthony Soto on April 12, 1952 in Fresno, California. When he was a young boy he worked at the San Joaquin Valley fields. Since his father died when he was five, he and his family had to work very hard for money. This distracted him from school but despite all of the hardships, Soto attended Fresno City College and California State University of Fresno where he got his BA in English. He then went on to attend UC Irvine where he was the first Mexican to graduate with an M.F.A. Soto taught at UC Berkeley and UC Riverside as a very distinguished professor. Additionally, he was a Young Ambassador for the United Farm Workers of America. Soto has received several awards for his work such as the American Book Award, the Andrew Carnegie Medal, the Hispanic Heritage Award for Literature, a silver medal from the Commonwealth Club of California, the Tomas Rivera prize, and the Phoenix Award. Additionally, the library at Winchell Elementary School in Fresno and is named after him plus there is a Gary Soto Museum at Fresno City College. Soto has written various children's books like Baseball in April (1990), The Skirt (1992), and Too Many Tamales (1992). Many of which revolve around Chicano characters and their lives. He has written poems as well some of which revolve around his experiences being Chicano. Soto has also written a few memoirs, some films, and a play. He continues to write today and spread pride and love for his culture. ✊🏽❤️🇲🇽 #latinxrepresentation #garysoto #chicanowork #chicanowriter #latinxsuccess #latinxexcellence #latinxachievement #mexicansuccess #mexicanwriter #mexicanwork #mexicanpride #latinxpride #sisepuede
