A collection of popular tales told to young children in places such as Argentina, Cuba, Colombia, Nicaragua, and Mexico.
The seven stories that make up this work tell about situations that occur inside and outside the classroom, such as the moment of a first kiss, the most daring kid in the class, the girl who can t stand gym class, and the boy who is in love but doesn’t know how to show it. The book manages two things uncommonly found in a single book: to interest and to entertain. Its author has written real, fresh stories of school days which any student (or teacher) can identify with.
It’s winter and little bear doesn’t want to go to sleep. He’d rather play, and he’s sure he won’t get cold outside, no matter how long the winter is, how deep the snow might get, or how hard the storm might blow. Until, that is, little bear finds himself all alone in a snowstorm. Claudia Rueda’s classic picture-book illustrations, with their simple, strong lines, shapes, and colors, show a very determined little bear and his mother in a striking, increasingly snowy landscape. Children everywhere identify with little bear as mama figures out how to tell him no.
