Santana, by Ben Lev

Written in Past Tense

Born and raised in Mexico, Carlos Santana started playing the violin when he was just a young boy. He soon realized that his real passion was the guitar! He began playing the guitar and went on to become one of the greatest guitarists of all time. This book tells how Santana, both the man and HIS band, launched into the music industry to become a Rock-n-Roll legend known throughout the world.

The low unique word count and high frequency factor (the number of times core structures are embedded in the text) make this an ideal read for very beginning Spanish students. Each page is loaded with cognates (words that are similar in English and Spanish), recycled vocabulary, and illustrations, which makes this read highly comprehensible. Enjoy the story! The more you enjoy it, the more you will acquire Spanish without even realizing it!

Oye como va!

I listened to a lot of Santana growing up but never knew anything about the master behind the music. Now I do, thanks to Ben Lev’s engaging book! As a novice-high Spanish learner it was fun to read a 104-page story all the way through.

Fascinating Biography

I read this in one sitting because it is so interesting! It's very comprehensible, and I learned so much about this artist. I think students of Spanish will enjoy learning about his life and music. After I read this book I spent the afternoon listening to his music, especially songs mentioned in this reader.


Very easy to work with! Ordered book from user friendly website. It came in perfect condition. I am completely satisfied. Thank you!
