A Mango in the Hand: A Story Told Through Proverbs

A Mango in the Hand: A Story Told Through Proverbs - Antonio Sacre, Sebastia Serra It is Francisco's saint day, and this bi-lingual story tells of the confidence and wisdom Francisco learns with the assignment of gathering mangos for his family celebration. The challenges Francisco experiences impart valuable lessons, but the over arching theme here is a loving family and a community of generosity and wisdom. A glossary of Spanish words and phrases, illustrations with a contemporary feel, depictions of a rich and vibrant culture, contribute to a satisfying reading experience.
