What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

This is the bilingual story of the farm maiden and her cadre of animals, who craft a festive piñata for a surprise celebration. “The Piñata That the Farm Maiden Hung” is a beautiful and lively companion to the award-winning “The Cazuela That the Farm Maiden Stirred.” A young girl sets out on errands for the day, and while she’s gone, the farm maiden prepares a piñata with help from a boy, horse, goose, cat, sheep, and farmer. After they all fall asleep in the afternoon sun, they must hurry to finish preparations in time. Key English words change to Spanish as the cumulative verse builds to the celebratory ending. With the familiarity of “The House That Jack Built,” the tale cleverly incorporates Spanish words, adding a new one in place of the English word from the previous page. This book makes learning the language easy and fun. Back matter includes a glossary, definitions, and directions for making a piñata at home.
