by Pat Mora, Raul Colon (Illustrator)
Doña Flor is a giant woman who lives in a pueblo with lots of families. She loves her neighbors–she lets the children use her flowers for trumpets, and the families use her leftover tortillas for rafts. So when a huge puma is terrifying the village, of course Flor is the one to investigate.
Featuring Spanish words and phrases throughout, as well as a glossary.
Doña Flor: A Tall Tale about a Giant Woman
Pat Mora - I was born in El Paso, Texas, and grew up in a bilingual home where books were an important part of my life. I can speak and write in both English and Spanish am I lucky! I've always enjoyed reading all kinds of books and now I get to write them too to sit and play with words on my computer.
