Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-5--The life of Mexican settlers in New Mexico in 1824 is introduced in two easy-to-read stories. In Meet Josefina, the nine-year-old protagonist deals with the recent death of her mother, begins to incorporate her newly arrived aunt into the family, and overcomes her fear of a goat. Lesson continues the family saga, as Josefina, her three sisters, and her aunt cope with the effects of a flash flood. The characters are engaging, the plotting brisk, and the situations ones to which contemporary girls can relate. Accurate historical data is incorporated painlessly into the stories and fleshed out in "Peek into the Past" sections. Glossaries define the Spanish words used in the texts. Sound additions to a time-tested series.--Ann Welton, Terminal Park Elementary School, Auburn, WA

I love this story because it is about learnng new things, yet remebering the old. Josefina fears her Tia Dorles teaching her how to read and write will make her forget what her dead mother taught her.
