Written in Spanish, this booklet contains brief information on six June events celebrated by Puerto Ricans: Nathan Hale, Dia de la Bandera (Flag Day), Francisco Oller, Dia de los Padres (Father's Day), Fiesta de San Juan Bautista, and school graduation. Designed for teachers, the booklet includes a listing of 16 historical events occurring in June, biographical sketches of Nathan Hale, and Francisco Oller's accomplishments, and information on the United States flag and the first American flag. Following a description of Father's Day in Puerto Rico are four poems, by Juan de Dios Peza, Douglas MacArthur, Carmen Alicia Cadilla de Ruibal, and an anonymous poet. The section on the Fiestas de San Juan Bautista describes the evening, night, and day celebration activities and includes six poems. After a discussion of school graduation are two poems about vacations. Eight recipes are provided for making summer refreshments from guanabana, limon, tamarindo, avena, and coco tierno, as well as champola de guanabana, horchata de ajonjoli, and mabi. The booklet also includes word find puzzles, discussion questions, and vocabulary activities.
