About this title

Synopsis:

Illustrated in full color. Wonderful things happen to young Rosa in her magical homeland of Mexico!  Her rooster, El Gallo, opens his beak and out fly violetas to sell at the market so the family can buy food. Rosa picks a star from the sky to help a fallen burro. A grateful wolf gives her a beautiful anillo, a ring to thank her for freeing him from a trap, and Rosa returns it to its rightful owner: a bride about to be wed. These three stories, written with a bewitching hint of magical realism and enhanced with playful illustrations by Mexican artist Andrea Arroyo, will transport very young readers to a mystical world alive with color and enchantment.          

Review:

Three stories of laughter, luck, and magic carry the precocious Rosa across the hillsides of Mexico. Elemental language conveys Rosa's encounters with a flower-bearing chicken, a gift-giving wolf, and an enchanted cooking pot. The vivid watercolor paintings of artist Andrea Arroyo bring Rosa and her delightful friends to life, while writer Campbell Geeslin's concise sentences prove the perfect vehicle for introducing simple Spanish words. A Spanish-English glossary accompanies the text. (Ages 4-7)
