Ahorita by Inga Paterson-Zuñiga
This novelita follows Paco on his ATV through the streets of San Miguel de Allende, and makes a perfect supplement for a "Places Around Town" unit! It also provides abundant exposure to time-telling. A bilingual glossary of cultural references is also provided for further learning opportunities. For learners who are drawn to imagery, it strikes a visually appealing balance between pictures and word count per page. Ahorita is written at a novice mid level, focusing on repetition of high-frequency structures and common “Mexicanisms”. Great for Readers’ Theater in the language classroom!
