Josefina lives with her sisters on a ranch outside of Santa Fe. In this book we get to see a snapshot of her life as her grandfather comes back from his trip to Mexico City. And with him comes special visitor!
What I Liked
- It was fun to learn some of the history of the Santa Fe area. I’ve been there, but never considered much of its past. Learning about the Camino Real was also pretty cool.
- It was a great way for me to practice my Spanish. (I read it in Spanish.)
- Overall this was a pretty cute story. It’s hard for me to imagine what life was like even two hundred years ago, so it was cool to jump into a snippet of it.
What I Didn’t Like
- Because it was written for a younger age, it wasn’t as enthralling for me. The story line was fairly simple, and the main antagonist was a goat.
If you want to practice your Spanish, you’ll enjoy this book. If you’re an elementary school reader, you’ll probably enjoy it too.
