Renata’s piñatas adventures are so fun and lively that you don’t notice how the repetition of high frequency language is masterfully woven into each chapter—you just want to find out what happens next. In addition, every sentence is accompanied by a cute illustration, making it even more fun. As an independent learner, I was motivated to “picture-talk” the chapters to myself after my first reading of the book. It’s empowering to be able to speak so much Spanish.
My students love books by Craig Klein Dexemple, and this is no exception. The short stories with lots of pictures get them asking questions and wanting to learn more about the places Renata visits.
