    The Three Little Tamales, by Eric Kimmel, is the adorable adapta

    The Three Little Tamales, by Eric Kimmel, is the adorable adaptation of the commonly known children's book, "The Three Little Pigs". Kimmel's inventive retelling of this story includes three tamales who do not wish to be eaten. When the tamales run away, they each build a different structure in which to live. But when Senior Lobo (the big bad wolf) decides to make a meal out of them, he learns he is no match for the wits of these clever little tamales.

    Kimmel's literary talents are perfectly paired with wonderfully expressive and utterly delightful illustrations provided by Valerie Docampo. This is a splendid book which also incorporates morsels of the Spanish language throughout the book helping kids to learn a bit of Spanish as they enjoy the antics of the three little tamales.

    The Three Little Tamales comes highly recommended and has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.

    Highly Recommended

    Great read-aloud book for all elementary ages. A new twist on old nursery rhymes. One of our favorite bed-time stories!

    Great Childrens Book!

    My two children love, love, love, this book! They want to read it at least two times before they go to bed. Even though my oldest is learning to read she has memorized the entire book and reads it to the younger one every night, then they want me to read it to them!
