Great review for Paco!!

     Wowsa! What a great review - I'm thrilled! Click the logo to read the whole thing, but here's the round-up:

     What a wonderful story. The author did a fabulous job taking what most of us assume is just a Spanish-added version of a classic story and truly making it her own. She did a masterful job blending Spanish into the story, offering repetition in English and Spanish together. As good as the story is, I could turn the pages just to look at the illustrations, too. On one page, el gigante terrible is reaching out to the reader!
     Everyone will enjoy this new ending to a classic story. The illustrations, combined with well integrated Spanish, make this a must-read for elementary-aged children.
     Buy. This is a wonderful book and a nice twist on a classic tale. The illustrations are exceptional and children (especially young boys) will see themselves in Paco: curious, drawn to magic, and a hero.

Hi Elizabeth ... Yes, Paco wowed our daughter. In fact, she came into my office, pulled it out and said she needed it "'cause Daddy hasn't read it yet." Guess it'll be a few more days before it goes to the next reader.
