Carl no quiere ir a México, by Karen Rowan
Nine-year-old Carl is not happy. His mother is moving him to Mexico. He doesn’t speak Spanish. He misses all of his favorite foods. He doesn’t have any friends. The idea is ridiculous. He’s desperately unhappy. Carl doesn’t want to go to Mexico! When he starts finding sick and starving stray dogs on the streets of Guanajuato, he finds out he’s not the only one who is miserable. But did he find them in time or is it already too late?
Carl no quiere ir a México contains more than 5,000 words but has only a 350-word vocabulary. High frequency vocabulary and structures are presented repeatedly. This is the third book in the Isabela series for true beginners.
