Spanish Thanksgiving Books {GIVEAWAY}

Today's giveaway is part of MommyMaestra's collaboration with authors Alma Flor Ada and F. Isabel Campoy.

For Spanish-speaking families and classrooms, we have two amazing books on the subject of Thanksgiving: Celebra el Día de Acción de Gracias con Beto y Gaby by Ada and Campoy, and ¿Pavo para el Cena de Gracias? -¡No, gracias! written by Ada and illustrated by Vivi Escrivá.

I want to thank Santillana publishing company, as they have graciously offered a copy of each book as a giveaway for MommyMaestra readers.

Celebra el Día de Acción de Gracias con Beto y Gaby is part of the authors' Cuentos para celebrar collection. It is the story of Beto and Gaby who are disappointed when their family members begin calling to say they can't make it to Thanksgiving dinner because of a snow storm. But Abuelita has an idea...You can read a more detailed description here.

¿Pavo para el Cena de Gracias? -¡No, gracias! is an excellent companion book to Charlotte's Web. This book follows the story of a turkey who is worried about being Thanksgiving supper and the spider who sets out to save him. You can see/read a few sample pages here.

Teachers and parents who are looking for Spanish-language children's literature for the upcoming holiday will appreciate these books.


One lucky MommyMaestra reader will win both books.
