Josefina tells Aguilar’s story, from when she first learned to mold clay as a child to the expertly modeled figures she makes today. Illustrator and writer Jeanette Winter is faithful to the Mexican tradition in her charming counting book. To complement Winter’s illustrations, several of Josefina’s clay sculptures are also on display.
