Growing Up with Tamales/Los Tamales de Ana
Title: Growing Up with Tamales/Los Tamales de Ana
Author: Gwendolyn Zepeda
"My name is Ana. Every year, my family makes tamales for Christmas. This year, I am six, so I get to mix the dough, which is made of cornmeal. My sister Lidia is eight, so she gets to spread the dough on the corn husk leaves. I wish I was eight, so that my hands would be big enough to spread the dough just right--not too thick and not too thin."
