Los Amigos del Tio Santiago (Uncle Santiago's Friends).
Cadilla, Carmen Alicia
This Spanish reader is written for Spanish-speaking children in first through third grades in a bilingual education setting. The short story is preceded by a preface to the teacher explaining the relevance of the subject, frogs, to Puerto Rican agriculture. The key word to be learned is the scientific name given to frogs, "batracios," and the main objective is to explain their behavior and contribution to agriculture. (Author/NCR)
