A super easy reader! La familia de Federico Rico is a short novel with over 200 illustrations, many cultural notes, dictionary and footnotes to aid students with comprehension. It’s a book that first-year Spanish students can easily grasp. My students consider it to be one of the easiest readers in our class.
Meet Federico and his kin, a seemingly ordinary immigrant family living in the U.S. As you chuckle at clever jokes intertwined throughout their stories, you will discover that the family is not so ordinary after all. While Federico's mother chases a criminal with an extremely large head, his self-centered sister snaps selfies. The pages will turn themselves while you journey with them through their highly illustrated cultural adventures. If you think Federico's immediate family members are interesting, wait until you meet his grandmother!
