A history lesson with a chapter book!
After reading this book I thought how neat it would be to use in my future classroom, I would be able to cover reading, history, and send wonderful messages to my students! I think it is wonderful how one book can incorporate so much, not to mention the book itself was great! I was never bored while reading and actually found it difficult to stop reading it. I wanted to know what was going on. Another reason I liked this book so much is because I think it would be wonderful to use in an ESL classroom. I am going to receive a minor in TESOL so I am very enthusiastic about having other students learn about different cultures and traditions. I feel as if this book will offer a great amount of the hardships and journey Mexican immigrants had to over come. I think it is important to be aware of others lifestyles in order to understand other people so in an ESL this book could help build the bridge!
