"Moon Rope" is a good book for students in the upper elementary school grades to read because it is a little more wordy and lengthy than the usual childrens book. It is a bilingual book, so if you have English Language Learners in your classroom they will enjoy reading something without having to ask for help with figuring out what words mean.

This is a great bilingual book for children to read. Students can get familiar with other cultures based on the writing. In my classroom, I would probably use this book for casual reading. If I wanted to do an activity with the story, I would do a fact or fiction activity where students have to pick out the facts from the book.

Both English and Spanish text. Peruvian folk-tale of why the mole stays underground. Interesting art based on traditional Peruvian textiles, jewelry, ceramics, etc. The story was a basic "Why this does this" folktale, a good story for young children and an introduction to bilingual texts/classmates.

Fox and mole attempt to climb to the moon in this telling of a Peruvian folktale.

Text in both Spanish and English. A pourquoi story explaining why moles live underground and why there's a fox in the moon. Illustrations are large and good for story hours; it was enjoyed by the third graders.
Paula
An adaptation of the Peruvian folktale in which Fox and Mole try to climb to the moon on a rope woven of grass. Both in English and Spanish
