Theme: Music, art, stories and language can reflect culture–in this case, the Mexican American community. 
A little lamb becomes very clever to keep a coyote from eating her up.

This book introduces viewers to Mexican American culture which is reflected in music, art, stories and language. LeVar spends time with a family who has made guitars for three generations, visits a mural painter and her students who are working on self portraits, and joins Los Lobos as they share their music and cultural ties.
