To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Both of my children (7 and 3 years old) loved this book. I actually even chuckled reading it out loud and didn't mind reading it over and over unlike other books. I gotta say that my 3-year-old really enjoyed it. He keeps asking me to read it to him, so I know it's a winner! Best of all, it teaches you how to say the Spanish words, which is great! I loved this book so much that I even searched here on Amazon for more books from the author, but sadly, they're not available.
This is a super cute story. The storyline mimics The Little Red Hen. Iguana and her friends (Tortuga, Calebre, Conejo) want to have a fiesta for their friends and neighbors, but when the work needs to be done to get ready for the party her friends are full of excuses. Iguana does all of the work and doesn't let Tortuga, Calebre, and Conejo come to the party. After the party is over they feel bad for not helping so they clean up after Iguana goes to bed. The next day Iguana shares the leftovers with them for helping. I use this book and other variations when teaching my Pre-k students about being good friends and doing their part. It also exposes them to some Spanish words and a different culture. I got this one used at a great price and in excellent condition!
Adorable! I was absolutely head over heels in love when this book was read to my 3 year old at story time. The book exposes children to the Spanish language in s very simple way allowing for mixed exchanges in Spanish and English. The story teaches children that friends should be dependable, value of hard work, and how laziness gets us nowhere. I love how the book shows the consequences to the friends behavior and how they decide to right their wrong. I highly recommend this book for any library you would be disappointed.
I bought the version of this book with the CD. My 5 year loves to listen to the story as he follows along. We speak a lot of Spanish at home but there are certain things that without practice are not clearly understood or just plain forgotten and this book does a wonderful job of teaching the days of the week in Spanish. The voices made for the characters are funny and he has inmensely enjoyed this book. As a matter of fact, we discovered it at the local library and he has enjoyed it so much that we ended up deciding to get him his own copy. The glossary at the beginning of the book, before the start of the story, is also read on the CD and it reinforces the words and pronunciation before starting the story.
This is one of my favorite books for children. New twist on the Little Red Hen. Introduces some Spanish vocabulary in a fun way. I used to read this to my son every night!!! He’s now 19. Just purchased for my teachers to use during Hispanic Heritage Month!!! Enjoy
I used this book with my K-2 students to teach a classroom guidance lesson for National Hispanic Month. Students were surprised that their School Counselor knew some Spanish, had fun learning and practicing some Spanish words and learned about the importance of respecting other's cultures and helping our friends. They loved the story and its similarities to "The Little Red Hen" story they already knew.
