This book was based off of the story "The Princess and the Pea." The main difference that was added in this book was that there are elements of the Spanish language. This could potentially help students who are English language learners. ( )

This is a different take on the Princess and the Pea. Spanish was added to the story which could be helpful to those that English is not their first language. This is a great text to give to an ESL student. ( )

This story is a twist of the fairytale the Princess and the Pea. The story is the same concept with the addition of Spanish words and written in rhyme. The story also introduces a new culture to students who are not familiar with the Spanish language and includes a glossary to help the readers understand what the are reading. This is a great story to mix the familiar and the unfamiliar and is rated 4 out of 5 stars. ( )

This book was another take on the classic story, the princess and the pea. It was the same story but Spanish was added in order to make it more accessible to children who may not speak English as their first language. This would be a good book to use to maybe have children start thinking outside of the box for how they could have gotten around the mother's test. For all of the reasons stated I gave this book a 4-star rating. ( )

With dazzling art inspired by the culture of Peru and rhyming Spanish words, the author of this children's picture book puts a twist on the classic fairy tale that will have you giggling at the end of the story. The book includes a glossary at the beginning of the book to help non-native Spanish speakers understand what they are reading; however the words rhyme in Spanish and not in the English translation. This is a very cute and adorable book to have in a classroom library and to use as a mentor text when studying Fairy Tales. ( )
