A complete pacakage!

Marta Yedinak offers Spanish learners and teachers a comprehensible reader packed with great supports which will make reading and rereading fun and easy. The book has beautiful, full-color illustrations, QR codes for the audio of each chapter, footnotes for higher level vocabulary, and a complete glossary. Teachers can use the illustrations for picture talk, prediction activities, quick writes and more. The audio, read by the author, will be great for students to listen to in class or at home if they miss class, but can also be used for substitute plans. This book is a must-have for the Spanish classroom!

Xolos are the coolest!

Having fantasized about owning a Xolo (dog) for many years, I was thrilled to find a fiction reader with some info about them! This book is not just a wonderful story of a young girl and her family, but about the Xolo dog and its importance in Mexican culture. This is a wonderful reader that will appeal to many students of all ages. Highly recommended for your FVR library or for a class reader.
