Pat Mora is the highest in bilingual literature. This story in particular follows Monica in her desire to become a baker, and each page is written in both English and Spanish. I'm most likely to use this one to study Spanish on my own! I'd like to use it in an educational setting, but I think it'd be difficult to do in a story time.

IN this book a young lady lives above a bakery owned by her grandparents. She wants to grow up and be a baker so her gma lets her practice for a party.

This book is about a little girl who dreams of being a baker because she has grown up in her grandparents bakery. She decides to go after her dream and test out her baking skills. This is an even text and is written in Spanish as well as English. This would be a great book to have in a classroom with Spanish speaking students so that they have something to read in their own language but also can read the English version. The illustrations are really great and I think that it is very well written ...more

Monica is an aspiring baker, just like her grandparents. While celebrating the Three Kings, Monica then gets to make some treats for her family and for the bakery. Great book to depict family and the importance of aspiring to be more than what you are today.
Good read for 2nd grade to 5th grade

Wonderful and empowering story in both English and basic Spanish that also features elements of living bilingually. Really great for food vocabulary (for Spanish learners) and elements of Mexican culture, such as el Dia de los Reyes.
