The first time I ever heard about this book was in my placement! I was able to read this book to my students and, wow, this is an awesome book! Without giving away too much, this book tells the story of a young Mexican boy who helps his abuelo find work. I would use this story in my classroom to include any Spanish speaking or Mexican student. This is such an excellent book that deals with the message of doing the right thing no matter how hard! I would also use it to teach students that honesty is always the right policy. I would use this book anywhere from 1st grade to 4th grade!
