Burro’s Tortillas By Terri Fields Illustrated by Sherry Rogers
The story is educational on several levels. It follows the production of a famous Mexican food while exposing the readers to something about the culture of Mexico and Central America. The story line introduces Spanish words as well as picturesque Mexican settings. Finally, the author has built the
story around a moral to be learned: he who wants to eat, should also be willing to work.
After the story concludes, the reader finds a section of interactive games to further enhance the learning of Spanish words introduced in the story. It also includes a recipe for making tortillas at home.
Burro’s Tortillas is a fanciful book for children. It exposes children to another culture, a foreign language and a moral. It is a wonderful children’s book. (reviewed by S.Fincannon)
