Luisito and the Piragua.
Produced for use in a coordinated program of studies for students in the Connecticut Migratory Children's program and for other students whose native language is Spanish, this illustrated booklet, intended as supplementary reading material for pre-school through fifth grade, tells the story of Luisito, a little Puerto Rican boy who has recently moved to the United States, and who misses his friends and his afternoon treat, a piragua (snowcone). The happy ending is that one day, while on an errand for his mother, Luisito sees a piraguero (snowcone maker) making piraguas, and is happy to find that he can buy piraguas once more. The narrative is followed by five learning activities: factual recall, making words make sense, solving crossword puzzles, hidden words, and coloring. (CM)
