    Excellent Practice

    This is a great way to practice simple conversation even for a beginner. Helps increase the vocabulary and word usage. An advanced student may find errors in it but for the beginner to intermediate this is an excellent book.

    Good Beginner Practice

    After 1/2 of a semester of Spanish, a student should be able to pick up this book for extra practice. The stories are short and the storyline simple. Vocabulary is limitted, but expands with the book. There are short question sets after each story. It is a good addition to Spanish textbooks to build reading skills and vocabulary.

    Don't Believe the Good Reviews!

    This book came to me highly recommended as the best way to improve reading comprehension in Spanish. While the book is very easy to read, the biased and incorrect information in the Mexican History essays proved too much of a distraction for me. The history of Mexico is written in a very condescending, pro-Cortes manner and is at times rude and/or incorrect. The Aztecs are described in a belittling manner, Cortes is revered as a brilliant and valiant hero, and the Aztec religious beliefs are reduced to one word - 'strange.' The most outrageous part is the description of the term 'Malinche' as a word of reverence! It is alarming to me that this book, which is popular for adults and children learning to read Spanish, may be the first bit of Mexican history to which the reader is introduced. It is unbelievable that this book continues to be used and published in the United States.
