Stories in Spanish about aspects of the history, culture, and daily life of Mexican Americans are included in this reading book developed by Edgewood School District Bilingual Program in San Antonio, Texas, for students in grade four through secondary school. "Escaparate" is the third of eight units being developed in this reading and language instruction program. Eleven reading selections are presented with many full-page pen and ink illustrations. Stories revolve around such themes as the family, decision making, history (i.e., the Battle of the Alamo and early Indian settlement at the present-day site of San Antonio), and working together. Stories utilize standard Spanish vocabulary. The reading book is one of three parts of the "Escaparate" unit; others are a teacher's guide and a student workbook. A vocabulary list of new words is included in the reading book. (RS)
