Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Rosa Roberts
Beginning Spanish readers will be fascinated with the simple sentence structure and vocabulary of this text. The vocabulary words are repeated through the development of the story, plus the events that transpire build upon the ones previously stated. All the illustrations and text lead the reader to the conclusion that the beach is Luis's favorite spot. The details included in the text are Luis' enjoyment digging and playing in the sand, liking to swim and play in the water, and enjoying flying his kite and playing in the pasture. Readers can practice the vocabulary words and fluency while using this book. This selection is from the "Read-it Readers" purple level, the first level of the series. This level provides basic vocabulary and sentence structure for emergent readers. The illustrations are simple and friendly for readers. Librarians and educators can purchase the Accelerated Reader test for this selection in the series.

Meet the Author

Susan Blackaby started writing in Mrs. Nichols' third grade class at Green Gables. She didn't think of becoming a writer until she had tried a few other things, including goat milking and weaving. Over the past 20 years, Susan has written textbooks, workbooks, and readers by the dozen for kids in elementary school. In 2002, her first trade book, Rembrandt's Hat, was named one of the top ten picture books of the year by the Washington Post. Susan lives in Portland, Oregon, with two people, two labs, and the nicest kitty in the world.
