2) The Vejigante and the Folk Festivals of Puerto Rico Coloring Book
The Vejigante (bay-he-GAHN-tay) is a fantastic, colorful character introduced into carnival celebrations in Puerto Rico hundreds of years ago. He is a classic example of the blending of African, Spanish, and Caribbean influences in Puerto Rican culture. The book offers detailed information about the origins of this fantastic character and its curious name. During the carnival celebrations in Loza Aldea and Ponce, the Vejigantes roam the streets in groups and chase children with their "vejigas." "The Vejigante and the Folk Festivals of Puerto Rico" tells the legend of the Vejigante and how he still appears today in carnival celebrations in three cities in Puerto Rico. The book gives insight into the differences in style and symbolism in these three festivals and is illustrated with beautiful drawings to color and contains historical notes that both parents and teachers will find interesting. This beautiful activity book serves as a great complement to the mask-making activity video "The Legend of the Vejigante."
3) Recreando el arte de Myrna Baez
This is a coloring book/activity book that revolves around the art work of Puerto Rican painter/printmaker Myrna Baez.

Marta Traba, an Argentinean art critic, in her book Polemic Proposal of the Art in Puerto Rico, describes Báez as "the most qualified person that I know in the visual arts in Puerto Rico.". Her work is of utmost importance to track contemporary art evolution in the island.
