9780785714057: Uncle Nacho's Hat/El Sombrero del Tio Nacho (Reading Rainbow Book)

A humorous folktale from Nicaragua about a well-meaning man who can't figure out how to make changes in his life until his niece shows him how.

When Ambrosia gives her Uncle Nacho a new hat, he tries to get rid of his old one, but to no avail. No matter what he does, the pesky hat keeps coming back to him. This classic folktale from the Puppet Workshop of Nicaraguan National Television, vividly illustrated by Mira Reisberg and presented in a bilingual edition, is a parable about the difficulties of making changes and shaking off old habits. The book includes an account of the origins of the story.
