The Road to Santiago

By Classic Children's Books

…The story is written in English with many Spanish words included throughout the story. This is a great story to read with children 5+ and for children comfortable reading on their own. Many of the Spanish words are family based and your children will sympathize with Alfredito’s concern that they will miss the family’s traditional Christmas celebration and all of the special foods his Abuela prepares for them. Your children will also learn about the traditional foods served for the Cuban Christmas holiday - roasted pork, yucca, fried plantains and rice and beans.
