Coneixement comú



This book is a good, easy read. The pictures are vibrant and colorful and I think it is very important that the book is in both English and Spanish. The book is also kind of nostalgic for me especially because as someone who comes from a hispanic household, the day of the child or el dia del nino is celebrated in my household and something that my mom always made us feel special with.

This book goes through the different sounds that you would hear in the desert. These sounds come from animals, plants, the wind, and more. This book is bilingual, so you see the sounds in not only English but Spanish as well.

"Doña Flor is a giant woman who lives in a puebla with lots of families. She loves her neighbors... So when a huge puma is terrifying the village, of course Flor is the one to investigate." Book has beautiful watercolor and etched illustrations and Spanish words mixed throughout. Excellent read-aloud to introduce students to tall tales.
