    I enjoyed these short tales in English & Spanish. I try reading the Spanish and then peek at the English when I really don't understand, which was fewer and fewer times per story as I move along. Meanwhile I got to read fun folktales from all over the South & Central America. :-)

    Enjoyed reading folktales of various latin american countries. It's a bilingual edition so I could read it in the language I choose. One of the stories was from Puerto Rico and it was good to laugh again with Juan Bobo.

    I bought this at an ESL conference. Latin American literature is highly neglected in the standard choices for reading material in most schools, so I try to expose them to it. Folktales lend themselves to teaching about cultural beliefs.

    This bilingual book of Latin American folktales is just right for reading at my level of Spanish. I try reading the Spanish version first; then scan the English version, then finish by reading the Spanish one aloud. Great practice!!
