Ana, una niña de seis años, está celosa de Linda, su hermana mayor, porque mientras preparan los tamales de navidad Linda puede embarrar la masa en las hojas de maíz. A su edad, solo dejan que Ana haga la tarea más sencilla, mezclar la masa. En este audiolibro bilingúe Gabriela Cavallero trasmite los deseos y pensamientos inocentes de Ana a través de varios cumpleaños consecutivos. En sus sueños, Ana no sólo se ve preparando tamales, pero también cuidando a los niños y poniendo gasolina en el tanque del coche de su mamá. A lo largo del libro, se oye cómo su papel en la preparación de los tamales se pone más complicado y desafiante. La actuación de Cavallero conlleva de manera experta la competición afectuosa de Ana con su hermana. Pausas apropiadas y la repetición de palabras ayudarán a los lectores jóvenes a leer junto con las dos versiones del audiolibro. K.P., L.R.P., trans. [ENGLISH TRANSLATION]--Six-year-old Ana is envious of Linda, her 8-year-old sister, because she's allowed to spread the dough on the corn husks while preparing the Christmas tamales, a Mexican holiday tradition with Aztec origins. Ana is relegated to the simplest task, mixing the dough. In this bilingual audiobook, Gabriela Cavallero portrays Ana's innocent desires and musings on successive birthdays as her part in preparing the tamales grows more complex and challenging. In her dreams, Ana even imagines herself being trusted not only to cook tamales but to babysit and even pump gas into her mother's car. Cavallero's performance expertly captures Ana's affectionate competition with her sister. Word repetition and appropriate pauses for emphasis will encourage the young listener to read along with the English and Spanish tracks. K.P. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
