Editorial Reviews

Review

"Pura Belpre-winner Judith Ortiz Cofer presents a bilingual book of Latino folktales about animals. This book is formatted with the English and Spanish versions of the tales on opposite sides rather than on opposing pages of a spread, you simply flip the book over to read the tales in the other language." --School Library Journal

I bought these for my grandchildren for Christmas. I read them myself & am looking forward to sharing them. The stories are delightful & are a learning experience. For those parents teaching their children to be bilingual, when you turn the book over, it can be read in Spanish.

Format: Paperback
Wonderful stories for children. Stores add a new twist to stories told in the oral tradition.
