Las Tres Comidas del Dia (The Three Meals of the Day).
Olais, Niltza M.
A sixteen line poem in Spanish provides the text of this short booklet on the three meals of the day. Designed for use as supplementary reading materials for the elementary grade Spanish speaking child, the booklet was developed by students in the Bilingual Teacher Aide Program at Mesa Community College. Content and language have been controlled to provide linguistically and culturally sensitive material relevant to the experience of the Chicano child of the Southwest. Large, black and white illustrations accompany the text, which centers around Panchito and the three meals he eats one day. For breakfast he may have orange and apple juice, eggs with sausage, grapes, bananas, and toast with butter and jam. Lunch time brings various salads, tacos and enchiladas. At dinner Pancho has fruit, cantaloupe, watermelon, tortillas, beans, tostadas, and taquitos. (DS)
