I think is a great book for teaching kids about another culture. I absolutely loved it. I think that this is a really great book for ESL students, but for any kid in general to teach them about a different culture. ( )

This book is about a grandma teaching her grand-daughter how to weave and they would take it and go sell at the market. I liked this book because it showed how beautiful their weaving were and it was a good book to read. grade level would be 2-3 grade.

Summary: Story of Guatemalan grandmother teaching her granddaughter how to weave.
Teaching: For ESL I would use this to introduce different Hispanic cultures along with their traditions and language. It may be used as whole class reading. ( )
