Isla de luz (Island of Light) is the third title in our successful Storyteller’s Series. The Series is appropriate for high-beginner and low-intermediate learners of Spanish. This new novella takes readers on a time-travel journey with "H-0011" (the protagonist), who is from Earth’s future. As readers travel back in time with H-0011 they are simultaneously introduced to important historical moments in Hispanic history, with a particular focus on the Caribbean region. This engaging story, written for intermediate students of Spanish, provides a format to encourage students to read for pleasure in Spanish and thereby further develop their language skills. Activities for students and suggestions for professors, in addition to a useful timeline of important dates in history, offer pedagogical tools that facilitate use of this reader in the class.
