This TL, Jack and the Beanstalk, Juan y Los frijoles magicos, this book retells the classic story of Jack and the Beanstalk by providing it in Spanish and English.

This RF, 17 Things I‘m Not Allowed To Do Anymore book was ok. Some parts were funny, but there were some parts that I understood parents would have a problem with. The book explains the different 17 things the child did that got her into not being able to do them again. Students will be able to relate and it's a great tool to have them talking about times they did something that they no longer can. LC will be a great strategy to use.

This RF, The Author Visit book is one of the many great black lagoon series. It‘s perfect to own because it provides different topics that students go through and reimagine what could happen.
