    The memories and experiences of Hispanic children are celebrated in a collection of short-lined poems from the author of Baseball in April (). With the one exception of the deliciously shivery ""Ode to La Llorona"" (a weeping ghost), the mood ranges from tired happiness to downright exuberance. A girl boasts that she doesn't have to pay for (snow-cones) because her father drives the ice. Award-winner Gary Soto’s Neighborhood Odes: A Poetry Collection captures common, real life events from a neighborhood. Full of wonderful figurative language, the book describes several facets of Hispanic life through the eyes of the children living : Chrissy Adkins.

      The odes celebrate weddings, the anticipation of fireworks, pets, grandparents, tortillas, and the library. Although Soto is dealing with a Chicano neighborhood, the poetry has a universal appeal. A minor drawback is that the Spanish words are not translated on the page, but in a glossary; to consult it interrupts the reading. For example, in Neighborhood Odes, a collection of some of my poems, I describe and celebrate life in a Hispanic neighborhood. I use details, such as the names of people I knew and the foods they ate, to illustrate daily life in the community.
