The Princess and the Warrior
The Princess and the Warrior: A Tale of Two Volcanoes | Duncan Tonatiuh
6 posts | 12 read | 1 to read
Award-winning author Duncan Tonatiuh reimagines one of Mexicos cherished legends. Princess Izta had many wealthy suitors but dismissed them all. When a mere warrior, Popoca, promised to be true to her and stay always by her side, Izta fell in love. The emperor promised Popoca if he could defeat their enemy Jaguar Claw, then Popoca and Izta could wed. When Popoca was near to defeating Jaguar Claw, his opponent sent a messenger to Izta saying Popoca was dead. Izta fell into a deep sleep and, upon his return, even Popoca could not wake her. As promised Popoca stayed by her side. So two volcanoes were formed: Iztacchuatl, who continues to sleep, and Popocatpetl, who spews ash and smoke, trying to wake his love.

#SeptemberDanes Day 23: Given the preponderance of contemporary realistic stories that are out there, it is rare that ancient legends and folktales are rendered with such a modern and relatable vibe to it. At its very core, The Princess and the #WarriorWorrier is a love story, similar to most legends. My full review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-eh3

"The Princess and the Warrior: A tale of two Volcanoes" by Duncan Tonatiuh. Princess Izta isn't to keen on getting married. Every suitor who has come to ask for her hand, no matter their wealth has been turned down. Until Princess Izta meets Popoca. Popoca promises the Princess the he will never leave her side until death do they part. The Princess instantly falls in love with Popoca. The Emperor tells Popoca, in order to marry the Princess

Dbenford he must first defeat their enemy Jaguar Claw but lies reached the Princess from their enemy and the Princess is stricken with grief. What will happen to the Princess? What were the lies? You must read to find out. This book would be great for these strategies AS, S and RA in the classroom. The link that I found was https://www.teachingbooks.net/to.cgi?a=1&tid=51215. The UDL and ELL strategy I chose was 3.2 (Highlight patterns, critical features 2y
Dbenford big ideas and relationships) and 7 (Show students how to use graphic organizers like semantic mapping and imaging). #UCFLAE3414F17 2y

When the princess and the warrior fall in love fate has other plans.
Duncan Tonatiuh's illustrations, reminiscent of Aztec artistry, are perfectly suited to the legend of the two volcanoes near Mexico City, Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl.
This book includes an author's note about the legend, a glossary of Nahuatl words, pronunciations used in the story, and a bibliography.
Great read for gradeschoolers.
