Very good. "I was also hurt by others who were equally as mean, and I am thinking particularly about an Okie kid who yelled that we were dirty Mexicans. Perhaps so, but why bring it up?"

A cute story of a young girl and her push-pedal low-rider car. Also her grandfather makes an appearance showing the value of the older generation to the younger. Teresa loves her car, but neglects to care for it properly and it becomes run down. Her grandfather helps her to fix it up. Spanish words are sprinkled through this version. The illustrations by Pam Paparone are very sweet.

This book is great for students at a beginner or intermediate reading level. It is about a cat named Chato and his friend Navio Boy, who live together. A family of mice moves in next door, and the cats invite them over for dinner, where they plan traditional Mexican foods such as rice, beans, enchiladas, frijoles, fajitas, and salsa. I would introduce this book to my classroom as a fun read-aloud for my students to learn about Mexican food culture.
