By Patti Lozano
Book and CD

Latin American Legends in English. This volume introduces Latin American culture in a captivating collection of popular and little-known legends, fables and fok tales. The 10 illustrated stories are written either in prose or as a play, each accompanied by a catchy, original song. The included audio CD has each song.

Each legend is preceded by Preparation Pages and is followed by pages contaning musical notation, song lyrics, comprehension questions, crossword puzzles and activities. The tales are written so that intermediate English speakers may experience the richness of Hispanic folklore with all their senses as they read, perform and sing.
