I liked the book Manana Iguana by Ann Whitford Paul for three main reasons. The first reason that I enjoyed this book is because of the inclusion of Spanish words. This book is about four friends who are planning a party. However, Iguana ends up doing all of the work for the party while the other three friends do nothing. Throughout the book, there is an inclusion of Spanish words through the names of the characters, the days of the week, and some other simple words and phrases. For example, the characters names are Conejo, Tortuga, and Culebra, which translates to Rabbit, Turtle, and Snake in English. The author did a wonderful job of incorporating Spanish words so that it is easy for the reader to understand what the words mean. I even learned a few words and phrases while reading this book!

The second reason that I liked this book was because of the glossary at the end of the book. In case children do not pick up on all of the Spanish words included in the text, the author provided a glossary of Spanish words that they can refer to. For example, on one of the pages the author states, “And then it was Sábado.” When I was reading the book, I did not know the word Sábado meant. Therefore, I flipped to the back of the book and looked in the glossary to find out what it meant – Saturday. Further, all of the Spanish words that are in the glossary are written in italics throughout the book, which is very helpful. ( )

This is twist on the Little Red Hen. Iguana, Culebra, Tortuga and Conejo decide to throw a party, but Iguana gets stuck doing all the prep work herself. There is some spanish vocabulary mixed in and it has a happy ending. ( )
