Stories That Must Not Die. Volume Two.
Included in this entirely bilingual (Spanish and English) text are 10 traditional tales from the Southwest intended to promote interest in bilingual/bicultural programs and to preserve the colorful folklore of the area. The stories, with black and white illustrations, involve folklore ("The Poor Little Naked Bird", "The Devil Takes a Bride", "The Road Runner and the Coyote"); history ("The Revenge of the Oppressed", "Stolen by the Comanches", "The Junipero Serra of Texas"); local legend ("The Lady in Black", "The Headless Rider", "All or Nothing"); and a children's story ("The Royal Beggar"). The Spanish and English texts are presented side by side, although the translations are not literal. Following each story are about 20 questions in Spanish and English, some about the story itself and others suggested by the subject matter. Completing the book is a vocabulary section in which 30 to 40 words per story are presented as vocabulary words in both languages or as cognates. The book is second in a series of four. (SB)
