Taino Tales: The Secret of the Hummingbird, retold by Vicky Weber
Starting with the first page, there are so many wonderful things about Taino Tales. It is geared toward elementary-age students, and the illustrations are so vibrant and well-done that they tell the story on their own to a young reader. I can imagine someone reading it to their child just one time and then the child being able to “read” it back to them.
This book would be a perfect gift for a young adventurer in your life that enjoys learning about other cultures. It might also be perfect for kids who love to use their imaginations or kids who enjoy a bit of fantasy and wonder. Some kids might really enjoy getting to learn a few new words from the pronunciation guide. I think the story of Taino Tales is one that kids will remember and want to tell it again!
