Reviews - What do customers think about Cuentos de la Selva (Spanish Edition)?
Tales that are classics Sep 16, 2005
There is a wisdom to these stories, they convey humor and delicate insight, they are captivating. The Blind Doe, the Lazy Bee, The Flamencos with Hosiery, The Bald Parrot, and so on. They could be on any Essential Literature list. Classic, enduring, charming. Nature is anthropomorphized but not made sacharin.
bilingual teacher's saving grace Oct 2, 2000
What can a bilingual teacher do when s/he notices that students look bored during read aloud? If they are in grades 2 or above, whip out Cuentos de la selva, a collection of stories about animals in the jungles of South America. Start with "El loro pelado". That will captivate them completely. After that, they will enjoy all other stories. Any student with a 5th grade reading level can read and enjoy the stories independently. I would like to thank this site.com for finding this book for me. I tried several other publishers, and they were unable to find me this gem.
