In the Spanish-speaking world, storytelling, folklore, legends and myths always teach a lesson. These lessons revolve around life skills, acquiring tolerance, and understanding the difference between right and wrong. Children have learned for generations that making correct decisions will affect their entire lives. They also know the environment around them can help or hurt, so they must be aware of any danger. The most famous story known throughout the world in different variations is the story of la Llorona, a crying ghost who mysteriously appears. This ghost is mostly seen near waterways, but can also be seen in other places. The base of the story is that if a child is playing in a ditch or river, la Llorona might appear, take the child with her, and the boy or girl will never be seen again. The moral is, do not play in ditches or rivers, because a sudden rise in the flow of water can hurt you. Rosal a de Arag n brings this story to life in her Spanish/English bilingual book for children, which is part of the Cuentame un Cuento series from Event Horizon Press. This delightful and captivating story tells of three children who have a narrow escape and learn the true meaning of being careful, looking out for others, and following the right paths in life. Wonderful illustrations created by high school student Rosalinda Pacheco beautifully enhance this book children and adults will find a joyful pleasure to read.
