    Great for beginning to intermediate Spanish Reader

    This book is just right for beginner to intermediate Spanish reader. It is a story easy to absorb with family lessons about tolerance, love and living life to its fullest. Great for 7-9th grader.

    Esperanza, Queen of the Roses

    Esperanza Rising is a great, sad yet happy book filled with adventuresto new places, and maybe even an immigrant or two! This book tells about a young girl's adventure to new lands, going from rich to poor in a week, and making new friends all at once! As you read this book, think about how your life could be, like the life of this girl, Esperanza!

    Esperanza Rising

    Esperanza Rising By Eric I loved the book called Esperanza Rising. But I also didn¿t like few things about Esperanza Rising. I¿m going to tell you what it¿s about and the age group who will enjoy it the most. First, Esperanza Rising is wonderful for all of the people that are interested in many things that are historical fiction. Also, for anyone who is interested about a life experience of an actual person in a story. Next everybody who likes a big change of something in a real life or a story should read this book. I suggest many people should read this book but I think that a specific population would really enjoy this book. This population would be 3, 4, 5 graders. Also, several middle school students who are serious and parents might like this book as well. There are parts in this book I criticize. First, the whole beginning and the middle of the story are very sad because Esperanza¿s papa died. Also, the whole story is serious and it¿s not like a fairytale, horror, adventure, fantasy, or comedy. If you enjoy historical fiction books that are sad and serious, then this is the book for you. So I told you many ideas and suggestions about this book. Also, if you fit the description, then you should read this book. Lastly, I hope you enjoy this book.

    The Rising and Falling of Family Ties

    The book of Esperanza Rising is wonderful for young adults to learn that every family has their ups and downs, but not necessarily does it change the family structure of staying together. This book opens the doors for other cultures to see the practical life of Mexican-American and immigrants. This book helps translate words from Spanish to English. It is a very esay reading and full with history, nutrition and family ties.
