Un nino llamado Manuel (A Boy Named Manuel).
These two books, designed for use in bilingual education programs, are parallel versions in English and in Spanish of the story of a young Puerto Rican boy who lives in New York. The story, illustrated with black-and-white photographs, is designed for oral activities with first graders and for reading and comprehension with second and third graders. The story can be used to develop reading comprehension by selecting the main idea and related details, drawing inferences, predicting outcomes, generalizing and reaching conclusions. Through discussion of each photograph and its main theme, the child can increase his visual discrimination and observation powers. (Author/AM)
