Carmen Tafolla, is an author that did an amazing job with this book "What can you do with a Paleta?', because the details and the colors she used are great and it kept my attention throughout her whole book. I like the way this book shows you many different ways to eat a paleta and what you can do with one. In the book she tells about how each family member uses a paleta in different ways and I think that shows how everyone thinks differently and can be creative. Also after I read this book I couldn't wait to eat a paleta and the book is definitely right because there is so many different favors that you can choose from. I think this would be a great book to read to kids but after reading it you will definitely want to eat a delicious paleta. This would be a great summer time book but I also think that you could read it whenever because I know that I still like paletas in the winter time. Most read this because it's a great children's book in my opinion.
