Based on the traditional Cuban Folktale rewritten by Lucia Gonzalez  and illustrated by Lulu Delacre, The Bossy Gallito (winner of the Pura Belpre Illustrator Award Honor) and summer camp of the same name celebrates the Latino cultural experience. The story tells of a bossy rooster on the way to his uncle's wedding who refuses to say please to get the help he needs. He finally says the word and has everyone and everything from sticks, goats, water, grass,  fire and even the sun helping him! Campers visit Havana and the Caribbean, learn about the symbol of the rooster and the importance of family and cooperation through community caring. Children will dance to Cuban rhythms including Salsa at the wedding celebration, sing songs about friendship, learn some Spanish movement poems and discover their own movement expression along the way.
