Isabela captura un congo
by Karen Rowan
Book 2, for True Beginners
Isabela Huffman is a precocious 9 year-old girl who finds herself tangled up in trouble again while traveling to Costa Rica with her mother. “I don’t cause problems!” Isabela insists. “Problems find me.” Isabela and her friend Daniel devise a plan to capture and train a howler monkey. When their antics cause a baby monkey to shock himself on an electrical wire and fall from a tree, Isabela and Daniel are in a race against the clock to try to save his life before it’s too late.
Isabela captura un congo is the second novel in the Fluency Fast series for true beginners. It uses a vocabulary of only 350 words to tell a 3500-word story. It is repetitive and simple and uses many cognates to make the book comprehensible to beginning adults and children.

I really enjoyed reading this book in easy Spanish.
My beginners read this novel and love it. The boys and girls identify with the plot and the precocious, but sharp intuition of the protagonist. The setting is authentic, the author does a good job at describing it, and illustrating it. There are places like this in Latin America where nature and people form a community, without worries. That, and the comprehensible and easy to read language, make this novel one of the favorites in my FVR selections table.

Though using a vocabulary of only 350 words, the story is engaging and interesting. I've found it difficult to find simple books for the beginning Spanish reader, but this fits the bill. Completely written in present tense.
