SENORITA GORDITA by Helen Ketteman

After being cooked up by a spider named Araña, a yummy gordita shook her little corncake tail and rushed away with a flip and a skip and a zip-zoom-zip, shouting, "You can't catch me, I'm Senorita Gordita!" in the tradition of her predecessor, "The Gingerbread Man." Then, the chase was on with Araña close on her heels. As she meets other Texas creatures (Largarto, Crótolo, Escorpión, Javalina, and Coyote) who each want to gobble her up, she comes to Búho who gives her some wise advice. Will she be foolish enough to fall for it, though?

Repetition, Spanish words, rhythm, and a fast pace makes this fun reading for teachers and students alike. Compare it to the traditional "Gingerbread Man" and you'll have a new favorite to lead your kids on a merry learning spree!

ARMADILLY CHILI by Helen Ketteman

When Miss Billy Armadilly decides to make some of her yummy armadilly chili, she asks her friends to help. Tex the Tarantula is too busy. So are Mackie the bluebird and Taffy the horned toad. So what's an armadillo to do? She'll make it herself, of course! "No workin' with Billie, no sharin' the chili!" In the process, she teaches them a lesson! Surprisingly, she learns a valuable lesson, herself.

THE LITTLE RED HEN by Jerry Pinkney

If you were a little red chicken, how would you know that the treasure you found were grains of wheat?

And, when you did find what it was out from your friends, the barnyard animals, how could you get them to help you plant it? What if they said, "No!" Would you do it by yourself?

When the wheat grows, how would you get someone to help you care for the seedlings? What if they said, "No!" Would you do it by yourself?

As you go from seed to bread, would anyone show you kindness? Would anyone help you? When the bread is all baked, who would YOU invite to eat it with you?

Author and illustrator Jerry Pinkney has recreated the classic folk tale, "The Little Red Hen" in vivid detail and color. His text maintains the integrity of the original tale while bold colors emphasize key words. One new character is added. Can you guess who it is?

THE RUNAWAY TORTILLA by Eric A. Kimmel

In Texas, Tia Lupe and Tio Jose make the best tortillas - so light that the cowboys say they just might jump right out of the griddle. One day, a tortilla does exactly that. Mocking her pursuers, the tortilla runs through the desert, encountering two horned toads, three donkeys, four jackrabbits, five rattlesnakes, and six buckaroos. She dodges them all, but is finally outwitted by Senor Coyote in this flavorful twist on the classic tale "The Gingerbread Man." (from Amazon Descriptor)
