I liked this book because it is filled with six different short stories that are not too long. The stories are interesting enough to gain the readers attention but short enough to keep the readers attention. A young reader will feel like they have accomplished alot after reading this book because there are six different stories. My favorite story is "The Blue Ribbon". I like how the boys mom knew that he was lying, but she never comes out and says it. She just grounds him. That is just like a mom because some how they seem to know everything that is going on.
This book is written in English and then when you flip it over it is also written in Spanish. It would be helpful to use this book in the classroom if you have a student that can not speak English. They student would be able to follow along with the class by reading the Spanish version of the stories.
