Below are Moms' Buzz picks of the week for a cultural and fun weekend:
**Emilio and the Enchanted Cow**. Mexico's renowned puppet theater company, Marionetas de la Esquina, uses colorful puppets, music, and humor to create a charming and hopeful story.

Ages: 5 and up 1/12/07-1/14/07.
**Peter and the Wolf**. This story of Peter's, and his animal friends', attempts to capture wily "Old Lupus," is a new approach to the old tale, using character dialogue rather than narrative to develope the plot.
