PB Award winner, Elya and Martinez-Neal retell a classic TL story in P form. Almost everyone knows the story of the Princess and the Pea and Elya brings the story a bilingual twist. Throughout the book there is Spanish words thrown in, like: acepto (i do), de moda (in style), madra (mother), roca (rock) and guisanta (pea). With beautiful illustrations and a rhyming poem style book, this will entice and be loved by all students!

JessicaRosell I found an amazing interactive RA by MaiStoryBook https://vimeo.com/252813506. This can even been played in the classroom! Mai address ESOL strategies 3, encourages self-talk, 5, teaching technical vocab, 21 recording story for students. Also UDL 2.1, and 2.5, clarifying vocab,2.3 support decoding of text and 3.1 supplying background knowledge 7mo

??? La Princesa and the Pea is a wonderful TL variation of the fairy tale, The Princess and the Pea, with a bilingual twist. Instead of the average Caucasian royalty, this story revolves around a la reina and her el príncipe. It is one of those heart warming stories that shows how true love wins. The story integrates Spanish vocabulary throughout which ties into EL strategy 24 #LAE3414sp19

ha_kaye There was a glossary to show how the words were pronounced and what they meant and in the story those words were in red, so it was easy to identify. The artwork is just gorgeous which lead to La Princesa and the Pea receiving the Pura Belpré award for the illustrations. This would be a wonderful RA during National Hispanic Heritage Month, which is September 15 to October 15 of this year! 8mo
ha_kaye UDL strategy 2.4, promote understanding across languages, is great for this book since it integrates Spanish vocabulary. This link provides post reading activities that integrate math, the arts, and language arts skills. http://www.theclassroombookshelf.com/2018/03/2018-pura-belpre-illustrator-award-... 8mo
Mmw2478 I didn‘t read any Hispanic heritage books but wish I had. They are important to have in the classroom. 8mo

"La Princesa and the Pea" (written by Susan Middleton Elya and illustrated by Juana Martinez-Neal) is a unique spin-off of "The Princess and the Pea" with its own South American twist! This engaging RA and P/MF picture book has won over the hearts of many readers, and has even acquired the Pura Belpre Award!
This sweet, humorous, rhyming tale shares the story of a cheery girl crossing paths with an eager prince and his overprotective mother.

caldwellalex95 "La Princesa and the Pea" can be incorporated in the classroom by having students engage their prior knowledge to predict various outcomes or parts of the story. Also, students can be taught to use their context clues. Elya's website, www.susanelya.com/L_princesa.htm shares how this book is a wonderful RA choice due to its "playful illustrations" and designs. This book supports ESOL strategy #4, #17, and UDL's comprehension guideline (3.1). 9mo
caldwellalex95 Overall, this colorful, diverse picture book is one I would recommend to anyone! #LAE3414SP19 9mo
DrSpalding I have not seen a post on this book before. Excellent choice! I like the focus on books with different languages. They will be present in your classroom which means you are providing a mirror for your students! 9mo
Edenmonet La Princesa and the Pea looks like such a cute book and I love that it is bilingual! ESOL kids will especially loves this because it has words that they will understand. Also, just like Dr. Spalding said this book can be a mirror for a Spanish speaking student, which is really important. 8mo

I LOVE this book. We‘ve had it from the library forever and I‘m paying fines on it so I just need to buy it. Great rhythm and rhyme. Pretty (and expressive) illustrations. A wonderful mix of English and Spanish.

2018 Pura Belpre Award for Illustrator.

Winner of the 2018 Pura Belpré illustrator‘s Award, this retelling of the fairy tale has a Latino twist.

The gorgeous illustrations of embroidered clothing were inspired by the people of the Colca Canyon in Arequipa.
