6. Personal Response: This story is upsetting, but I like how upsetting stories are told as morals for young people. We don’t always need to protect our children from ugly stories, especially when they are meant to teach a lesson or keep children safe. The United States is very prudish about this sort of thing.[return]7. Connections: Legends of other countries, bilingual book unit, etc. I like to go through the English and Spanish texts together and pick out cognates and find new vocabulary. This would be a helpful ESL lesson.
