with Esperanza becoming their housekeeper The Mexican folk art paintings in this book gave the fairy tale a unique touch DePaola includes at least one Spanish phrase on each page, immersing the reader into Hispanic culture I enjoyed this version of the fairy tale because there was no prince or princess, rather an orphan girl trying to reconnect with a childhood friend and eventually marrying him I would recommend this book to anyone who has sought out Hispanic fairy tales for their children or students, and even suggest that it could be used in a Spanish age appropriate class Adelita A Mexican

Adelita hears about the fiesta that the rich family, the Gordillos, were having and she tries everything to go to the fiesta and see the Gordillos handsome son, Javier Adelita A Mexican Cinderella Story is truly one of the most memorable retellings of Cinderella ever told Out of all the versions I have read of the classic story of Cinderella, this was the first time that I have heard of a Mexican version of this classic tale and therefore, it made this book extremely unique from all the other fairytale versions I have ever read Tomie dePaola has truly done an excellent job at both illustrating and writing this book as the story is extremely heartwarming and dramatic at the same time When I was reading this book, I can actually feel sympathy for Adelita s predicament as she is treated cruelly by both her stepmother and her stepsisters and I think that many children would feel sympathy for her too I also loved the way that Tomie dePaola puts various Spanish phrases in the book such as Hace mucho tiempo and then explaining the phrase in English like Hace mucho tiempo a long time ago and what made the Mexican language much easier to understand is that Tomie dePaola provides a glossary at the end of the book detailing the translations of each Spanish phrase Tomie dePaola s illustrations are muchbeautiful in this book as all the characters look realistic and fluid The illustration that stood out the most for me was the illustration of Adelita herself as she has long black hair and beautiful dark eyes and also Tomie dePaola provides the perfect Mexican atmosphere in his illustrations by drawing images of Mexican styled houses Adelita A Mexican Cinderella Story is truly one of the best retellings of Cinderella I have ever read since it deals with Mexican culture and is a retelling of an old fairy tale, so children who love Mexican folktales and fairytales in general will definitely enjoy this book I would recommend this book to children ages five and up since the Spanish language might be a tad bit too confusing for smaller children to understand.Review is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog In this take of Cinderella, Adelita dreams of meeting

It includes some words in Spanish and provides a translation right after Additionally, at the end of the book it provides a mini glossary on how to say each phrase and what they mean in English Some concerns regarding this story are in the differences that could be found The fairy god mother is actually a woman that has been working for the family her whole life The step mother treated Adelita terribly even before her father died The illustrations are beautiful, vivid colors, but I don t feel they represent the Mexican culture well As an outsider, one might think the illustrations represent Mexican heritage however, they might play into the stereotype of how others see Mexican people Overall, you could use this story to compare and contrast to other Cinderella stories This folk story begins when Francisco and Adela, a married couple, found out they are having a baby Francisco is delighted by the news He decides to call for Esperanza, his nana, the lady who take care of him since he was born, so that Esperanza can take care of Adela, the baby, and the house Esperanza is happy to help Sadly, short after the baby is born, Adela becomes ill and dies Esperanza takes care of

finds Adelita again Finally, they marry and live happily ever after I enjoyed reading this book very much I loved this book because of the detailed illustrations, sequence of events, and bilingual sentences throughout the story.The genre of this book is Folklore.This book would be appropriate for students ages 5 to 8 years old K 2 grade.I think this book would be a great read aloud, for which the teacher can ask open ended questions such as What do you think is goint to happen next What do you think Adelita is going to do next , and students can be encouraged to make predictions Also, students can work in pairs reading the book to each other, discussing main ideas from the story, describing characters, and using illustrations as guides to deepen text comprehension In addition, students can use a story map provided by the teacher in which they will fill in content from the story Then, they will use that information to write a summary of the story using key words such as at the beginning of the story, the problem was, etc Finally, they will be asked to draw a picture of their favorite part of the story and write their explanation of why they chose that part on their writing journals.For Spanish native speakers, they should be able to recognize and make connections to the story by the words mentioned in the text since this is a bilingual book However, if some of the words are unknown to them hacienda plantation, farm, disappointment decepci n The teacher can explain these terms to them before the book is read pre teach words In addition, the teacher can look for cognates Spanish English to help clarify meaning and make comprehension easier crucifix crucifijo, natural natural, rumor rumora, serious serio, chocolate chocolate, recognize reconocer, etc.If

have seen other books where the translation issmooth and understood in the text, rather than how it was done in this story We have a Tomie DePaola author study in 1st grade at my school, and for some

many similarities between the two stories, however the substitutions of a fairy godmother to an old loving nanny without the mention of magic, the prince to an old childhood friend and the glass slipper to a shawl previously worn by Adelita s mom make such a wonderful difference to the story It is a folklore genre book and I would recommend it for grades K 4.Since the story has a beautiful flow and most students have heard or read some version of the classic Cinderella tale, it would be great to use in lower elementary grades to help students learn to relate the sequence of events, understand the structure, and beginning, middle and end of the story It can be best used to compare and contrast various versions of the Cinderella story in upper elementary grades Teachers with bilingual students in the class can use this book to gauge their interest in the intricate details and differences in the story I have read a few versions of the Cinderella story, but nothing without the fairy godmother or the infamous glass slipper I love how close to reality this book is and how well suited the substitutions are I feel that it is important for younger minds to understand logic and reasoning For the other Cinderella versions, I felt quite helpless while explaining exactly how the fairy god mother transformed everything, does magic really happen and other questions along the same line Adelita makes that job a lot easier Adelita A Mexican Cinderella Story is a folklore picture book that is a rendition of the classic Cinderella There are many similarities in this story as

great story, and the older grades could delve into the similarities and differences and even write their own versions of Cinderella This is a WOW book for several reasons First, I truly enjoyed the Spanish phrases and translations provided on each page This really immersed the readers into the Hispanic culture and allowed my students to try to use those words As a read aloud, it is something that teachers may want to note because the words can be somewhat tricky if you are not familiar with the language Next, the illustrations in the book aided in the understanding of the culture and added a unique touch to the story Last but not least, I enjoyed that this book was using a traditional story that students were familiar with, but it included characters of a different ethnicity It is good for students to read a variety of texts that show diverse main characters and my students were thoroughly engaged throughout this read aloud I picked Adelita by Tomie dePaoloa for my folklore genre GoodReads After reading it, I thought it would be nice for my Reading Buddy She marveled at the occasional paired text of English and Spanish And, she probably enjoyed me stumbling over words

mind for the read aloud This text is rated a Level 3.3 There is also a Spanish Phrases glossary in the back of the book, which you can ask your ESLs to teach you and the class prior to reading the book After practicing the Spanish phrases, your class could make predictions of the outcome of the text, or create a KWL chart What a nice community builder Adelita is as you and your class can practice the newly acquired Spanish phrases throughout the week and year I highly recommend Adelita This book is an amazing take on the classic folklore fairytale of Cinderella I would read this in a

new words that they arecomfortable with This is also a great opportunity since Cinderella is such a well known story, and gives the students a chance to revisit it but in a new and exciting way with the integration of Spanish In the classroom, I would integrate this with another folklore fairy tale story, or even make a lesson comparing this version with the original since their are some differences This would get students to focus on the details, since many of them will probably already understand or have heard of the theme plot of Cinderella This could also be used as a way to begin learning Spanish Vocabulary, and findbooks with the same type of integration in order for my students to getexposure to another language Overall, such a fun and helpful resource for my future

wanted to reconnect with a childhood friend and a nanny who was always taking care of her.This book would be a great read aloud for grades K 8 The younger grades could focus on the enjoyment of this great story, and the older grades could delve into the similarities and differences and even write their own versions of Cinderella This is a WOW book for several reasons First, I truly enjoyed the Spanish phrases and translations provided on each page This really immersed the readers into the Hispanic culture and allowed my students to try to use those words As a read aloud, it is something that teachers may want to note because the words can be somewhat tricky if you are not familiar with the language Next, the illustrations in the book aided in the understanding of the culture and added a unique touch to the story Last but not least, I enjoyed that this book was using a traditional story that students were familiar with, but it included characters of a different ethnicity It is good for students to read a variety of texts that show diverse main characters and my students were thoroughly engaged throughout this read aloud I picked Adelita by Tomie dePaoloa for my folklore genre GoodReads After reading it, I thought it would be nice for my Reading Buddy She marveled at the occasional paired text of English and Spanish And, she probably enjoyed me stumbling over words she could read so easily Adelita is a Mexican Cinderella Story with a very thoughtful and kind ending Adelita shows kindness, love and forgiveness, even after being mistreated The illustrations are

we should behave and how to best deal with difficult people in our lives an inevitable situation which all classroom communities face at one point in the year, oroften This text can be used as a mentor text to introduce dialogue, characters, theme, and macaroni language i.e., using two languages for four different Writer s Workshop mini lessons A Beach Ball Story Map will work nicely for this text Adelita can also be used to introduce an art lesson on complimentary colors I recommend Adelita for grades 1 5, depending on the reading abilities of your students and the purpose you have in mind for the read aloud This text is rated a Level 3.3 There is also a Spanish Phrases glossary in the back of the book, which you can ask your ESLs to teach you and the class prior to reading the book After practicing the Spanish phrases, your class could make predictions of the outcome of the text, or create a KWL chart What a nice community builder Adelita is as you and your class can practice the newly acquired Spanish phrases throughout the week and year I highly recommend Adelita This book is an amazing take on the classic folklore fairytale of Cinderella I would read this in a 3rd 4th grade classroom in order to expose my students to Spanish vocabulary This book is about Adelita, a girl whose mother has passed away and now has an mean stepmother and stepsisters that treat

new words that they arecomfortable with This is also a great opportunity since Cinderella is such a well known story, and gives the students a chance to revisit it but in a new and exciting way with the integration of Spanish In the classroom, I would integrate this with another folklore fairy tale story, or even make a lesson comparing this version with the original since their are some differences This would get students to focus on the details, since many of them will probably already understand or have heard of the theme plot of Cinderella This could also be used as a way to begin learning Spanish Vocabulary, and findbooks with the same type of integration in order for my students to getexposure to another language Overall, such a fun and helpful resource for my future

s theater After reading this book to my students, I would put them in groups of 5 to 6 students and have them write out a script that portrays the events of the book Then they would have the chance to preform their script in front of the class This would help build students fluency and comfort level with reading.I would also use this text in a comparing and contrasting unit Students would have the opportunity to read the original Cinderella story in small groups and then create a Venn diagram comparing and contrasting the two stories This is a WOW book for me because of its resources Throughout the book there are many key words and phrases written in Spanish and then translated in English There is also a glossary with Spanish phrases to help students make sense of some of the language used
