Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In a few pages we learn a lot about Paula. She sees that everyday her mother goes to the mailbox and always has mail waiting for her. Nevertheless, there is never anything for Paula. She finally decides that in order to receive mail she must first be the one to write. She decides to send her grandparents a letter. She does not only write them a long letter, she also draws a picture. She gets the envelope and postage and takes her letter to the post office. Then the waiting begins. Days go by and no letter for Paula. Where is her letter of reply? Ultimately, Paula receives more than a letter back. In elementary Spanish, this Red Level book from the "Read-It! Readers En Espanol" series deals with taking action and waiting in a way a child will understand. The simple cartoon illustrations do not get in the way of the subject matter but rather accentuate the points it is trying to get across. 2006, Picture Window Books/Capstone Press, Ages 4 to 6.
