⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Jenny wrote, "This was highly engaging - 6th graders love creepy more than anything else. This was a great introduction to this tale before we read Summer of the Mariposas. It provided a lot of great background for the legend that is often referenced in our novel and the kids loved the spooky aspect." (used with 6th Grade)
