El lenador, el nino, y el burro. Serie Primaria. (The Woodcutter, the Little Boy, and the Donkey. Primary Series.)
Marquez, Jerry
The illustrated book tells the story of a woodcutter, his son, and their donkey. Written in Spanish, the story tells how one day after cutting and selling the wood, the woodcutter, who was very tired, decided to ride the donkey back home. On the way, they met some young girls who thought the woodcutter was very mean for making his son walk while he rode on the donkey. After hearing this, the man put his son on the donkey. A little later, they met some women who said the boy was ungrateful to permit his father to walk while he rode. So the father also got on the donkey. Later they met a man and a woman who said they were cruel to make the donkey suffer by carrying them both. At hearing this, the man and his son both got down and walked by the donkey. Then they met two men who said they were dumb not to ride the donkey. After hearing this, the woodcutter said to his son, "If we worry about what people say, we may end up carrying the donkey on our backs, and we are not going to please anyone." Three activities are included. (NQ)
