    Loved this story about a mother who fights for her family in a very cute and interesting way I also enjoyed the humor mom and dad smooching and dad and brother showing off their muscles It made for a great, quick read aloud in class It also includes a beautiful lesson about bilingualism.

    I first heard this book at a workshop for Bilingual Story times I fell in love with it I read it every chance I get I can now read it without the book since I know every line Mr Sacre has provided a story that recognizes the importance of being Bilingual and the benefits it provides in getting you out of the toughest situations.

    This is a hilarious retelling of a Cuban folk tale, which is also told in Uruguay and probably in other countries It s prefaced by an author s note telling about his boyhood as the child of Cuban immigrants, and how his grandmother, on learning that he d abandoned Spanish as a teen, got so mad threw food at me until I learned it again The simple story, brightly illustrated, is of a cheerfully affectionate family who goes on a picnic Due to the rather foolish antagonism of the children, a cat This is a hilarious retelling of a Cuban folk tale, which is also told in Uruguay and probably in other countries It s prefaced by an author s note telling about his boyhood as the child of Cuban immigrants, and how his grandmother, on learning that he d abandoned Spanish as a teen, got so mad threw food at me until I learned it again The simple story, brightly illustrated, is of a cheerfully affectionate family who goes on a picnic Due to the rather foolish antagonism of the children, a cat comes to threaten the excursion and attempts to eat the mice The action comes to a climax when the cat is about to eat the entire family, and is resolved I won t quite spoil the ending when one of them threatens the cat in an unusual way.The book is lightly salted with Spanish phrases a brief glossary is helpfully provided It is a lighthearted yet sincere tribute to bilingualism, and the family s unity and affection notwithstanding the cowardice of certain members in hiding behind Mother is delicious

    Antonio Sacre actually came to one of my elementary classes to read us this book I don t know what else to say, aside from the fact that this story will always be one of my favorites The way he tells the story is absolutely perfect, and I know for a fact that I will recommend this book for any age, although this story is very child like, but the lesson is basically for everyone It teaches the importance of being able to speakthan one language and family Absolute perfection in general.
