    I had never heard of a vejigante mask before, so I looked it up on Google. At first I had thought this might be a good book to read to students and then have a vejigante mask art project. However, after looking at the Google images, it seems that these masks might prove to be a daunting project for younger students. Regardless, the cultural aspects found this book would still be important to share with my kids.
