Well it was cooking and they started playing music and dancing and forgot about the Cazuela. It was about to all bubble over but they stirred it just in time.
Everyone ate and danced and thanked the farm girl for the delicious food. KPyfromDay Aug 22, The Cazuela that the Farm Maiden Stirred is a colorfully illustrated picture book about a maiden making a pot of rice pudding and all of the creatures that contribute to the dish.
One Big Rain marks Ryan's foray into children's picture books. Literary Agent. Would love to read this book to my chiquitos! Even if it serves just one it might be worth it. Awards and Accolades.
The story is simple, building each page until the dish is complete. The story introduces a number of basic Spanish words and provides pictures for context, as well as a glossary of the Spanish words used in the story.
The book is a nice bridge between English and Spanish for early readers. I enjoyed this book very much.
I enjoyed the illustrations, use of personification, the fact that there were spanish words included, and a glossary at the end where the reader can learn the words. I also enjoyed that story was told backwards in terms of the animals getting the different ingredients ready because I personally felt that it made it more clear to backtrack.
