I used this book for my 1st grade placement in learning about a different culture and their tapestries, similar to the ones the little girl and her abuela make in the story. They sew these beautiful tapestries by hand and sell them at the market. We talked about the country of Guatemala, where the story was set, and a couple of children who were born there shared a little bit about it.

we then got to make "tapestries" of our own by cutting construction paper into strips and weaving it into a large square. The kids really enjoyed it and it was evident that they grasped and comprehended the story.
