I really wasn't impressed with this book, which is too bad. I was really excited to find it because we do a community unit in the fall. The story is alright, and the pictures are colorful. What I didn't care for, was how they used the English. She is using more of a vernacular English, which I appreciate for the creativity, but I don't feel like I could use this book with my students, as one of my main jobs as a bilingual teacher is to teach them oral English. At this point in their education, I feel like I really need to give them strong models of the English the language.
