Dos Amigos... (Two Friends...).
Aguilar, Rosalie M.
Intended for supplementary reading material for Spanish speaking children in elementary grades, this illustrated Spanish text was developed by students in the Bilingual Teacher Aide Program at Mesa Community College. Both language and content have been controlled to provide linguistically and culturally sensitive material relevant to the experience of the Chicano child of the Southwest. The story centers around Teresita Tortilla who one day encounters a strange newcomer on the kitchen table. He is square and white with corners the color of coffee and he calls himself Pablo Pan. Teresita and Pablo become better acquainted and learn all about each other. They discuss the grain families they come from and find they are related. They discover what each is used for and compare their similarities. Once strangers, Teresita Tortilla and Pablo Pan become good friends. (DS)
