This is a great multicultural book written in English, but integrating Spanish words. It does this is such a clear and understandable way for all readers that may or may not know Spanish. The story takes place in a desert and combines things that may be present in this area. It is lighthearted and humorous in the way Little Red in the story tricks the coyote (instead of wolf). :) I really enjoyed how this story does not stray from the original tale, but smoothly adds in its own character to make ...more

Reflection:
This fiction book is a spin of “Little Red Riding Hood” set in the Chihuahua Desert of Southwest America. I do not feel this book specifically targets a particular group but rather gives children who speak English an introduction to Spanish words. To Spanish speaking children it gives them a chance to hear a bilingual version of “Little Red Riding Hood” and allows them to grow both their primary and secondary language. Spanish words are introduce

A nice variant of the Red Riding Hood tale. But buy the bilingual version--which is what I thought I was buying! I can't believe the publisher thought we needed a whole separate English-only version. The "bilingual" version is still mostly English, but sprinkles a few Spanish terms throughout. Hearing Isabel address the villain as "Señor Coyote," especially given the setting of the story, is far more fun than the flat "Mister Coyote."

A nice variant of the Red Riding Hood tale, featuring a doughty red-clad heroine. If you purchase it, be sure you're getting this nice version with Spanish terms embedded in the text. The publisher has also put out an English-only version, which is nowhere near as much fun.

I loved this book! It Little Red Riding Hood but from a different culture. Its cute and follows the same lines except...well you will have to read it. What a great cultural book. LOVE!
