Carmen Learns English

Written by Judy Cox and Illustrated by Angela Dominguez

Carmen wishes she was back in Mexico, where everyone spoke Spanish and she didn't stand out. But a little bravery, a loving family, and a compassionate, determined teacher help Carmen find her way. Señora Coski's Spanish is muy terrible, but that means Carmen knows she won't laugh if her English sounds terrible, too. Soon, Carmen is confident enough to join in lessons, games, and songs—and she starts to teach her classmates Spanish, too!
