The prince and his bride had hijos galore, one for each mattress, and then had no more.

This was an amazing way to incorporate Spanish into a well known tale for children. Spanish is substituted throughout the book in some places. The princess and the pea follows the same message but set in a different place, probably Spain or Mexico.

His madre was picky. She hoped for perfection. The prince was so lonely-in need of affection.

La Princesa and the pea, published in 2017 was one of my favorites by far. It was interesting to see this traditional story told in a different culture. I loved how they gave a glossary at the beginning to make the different words easier to understand. I also enjoyed how the sentences rhymed it made it more enjoyable to follow along.

I may be biased because I love the princess and the pea but this story was one of my favorites. I love how it includes foreign language.

La princesa is a picture book that is a Hispanic take on the princess and the pea. Published in 2017 it includes a glossary of Spanish language that is used in the book. The story uses Spanish language to describe the known story of the princess and the pea.

I love how this is a rendition of the original tale “the princess and the pea”. To add to that, I love that it is geared towards other cultures. Overall, this is a great retelling of the story while including another culture.

You can never be too careful letting someone marry your son, especially if he is a prince. In a new twist on the fairy tale, Princess and the pea is La Princesa and the pea! This story is full of English/ Spanish combination that flows smoothly and leaves context clues for translation. Sentences will go “his MADRE is picky”

LauraLeighn on a page with our main character and his mom. This gives students the chance to make connections and use context clues to understand. This also gives some ELL‘s an opportunity to shine and answer vocabulary questions in their native language. UDL 2.4 (Promote understanding across languages) can easily be applied to this book and would support the cross-learning of Spanish and English vocabulary during a Read Aloud(RA) lesson.This book would be 2y
LauraLeighn great for Read Aloud (RA) and gives our Spanish speaking students a chance to participate. As long as ESOL 22. (Give enough wait time for second language learners to respond to questions) is applying the lesson can run smoothly. Allowing the ELL‘s time to unravel the English part of the sentence and use the context of the Spanish words is important in facilitating a fair and functioning class. 2y
LauraLeighn . Mrs.Jumps's class website has a great breakdown of lessons and activities that can be used with this book https://deannajump.com/la-princesa-and-the-pea/ and includes plenty of images and downloadable. #ucflae3414SU20 2y
DrSpalding This is a wonderful multicultural version of a classic piece of traditional literature. Your resource could help you create storytelling props or props for an interactive read aloud. You have provided specific, detailed information regarding English learners in this post. Well done. 2y

La Princesa and the Pea is bilingual fiction picture book written by Susan Middleton Elya. This culturally rich book won the Pura Belpre award in 2018. This story tells of a prince who longed for a wife, but his prickly madre had other plans! When the prince meets a beautiful princess, what will the queen do to test her to see if she‘s worthy?

ValeriaCastaneda23 I would use this book to teach vocabulary in different languages. UDL strategy 2.1 clarify vocabulary and symbols and EL 12 Teach to two objectives, language and content. https://youtu.be/w1NDLrABc6o this link provides a read aloud of the book that can help with pronunciation of the Spanish words! #UCFLAE3414SP20 3y
ValeriaCastaneda23 I would use the S teaching strategy with this book! 3y
hadassajl This book looks amazing! I love the resource you added. Adding the pronunciation help really makes it a great resource. Great post! (edited) 3y
DrSpalding Your English learner strategy is absolutely perfect for this book. What a wonderful version of the story and wouldn‘t it be great to include Spanish words on your word wall. 3y

#ReallyRandomFebruary Day 23: This bilingual retelling has all the familiar elements embedded into it, but I like how the #Prince was portrayed to be a mama‘s boy, but also with his own wits about him. The unfamiliar Spanish words did not detract at all from the narrative, but contributed a lilting, whimsical, lyrical quality to the story – more than anything. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-lnr

PB Award winner, Elya and Martinez-Neal retell a classic TL story in P form. Almost everyone knows the story of the Princess and the Pea and Elya brings the story a bilingual twist. Throughout the book there is Spanish words thrown in, like: acepto (i do), de moda (in style), madra (mother), roca (rock) and guisanta (pea). With beautiful illustrations and a rhyming poem style book, this will entice and be loved by all students!

JessicaRosell I found an amazing interactive RA by MaiStoryBook https://vimeo.com/252813506. This can even been played in the classroom! Mai address ESOL strategies 3, encourages self-talk, 5, teaching technical vocab, 21 recording story for students. Also UDL 2.1, and 2.5, clarifying vocab,2.3 support decoding of text and 3.1 supplying background knowledge 4y

??? La Princesa and the Pea is a wonderful TL variation of the fairy tale, The Princess and the Pea, with a bilingual twist. Instead of the average Caucasian royalty, this story revolves around a la reina and her el príncipe. It is one of those heart warming stories that shows how true love wins. The story integrates Spanish vocabulary throughout which ties into EL strategy 24 #LAE3414sp19

ha_kaye There was a glossary to show how the words were pronounced and what they meant and in the story those words were in red, so it was easy to identify. The artwork is just gorgeous which lead to La Princesa and the Pea receiving the Pura Belpré award for the illustrations. This would be a wonderful RA during National Hispanic Heritage Month, which is September 15 to October 15 of this year! 4y
ha_kaye UDL strategy 2.4, promote understanding across languages, is great for this book since it integrates Spanish vocabulary. This link provides post reading activities that integrate math, the arts, and language arts skills. http://www.theclassroombookshelf.com/2018/03/2018-pura-belpre-illustrator-award-... 4y

"La Princesa and the Pea" (written by Susan Middleton Elya and illustrated by Juana Martinez-Neal) is a unique spin-off of "The Princess and the Pea" with its own South American twist! This engaging RA and P/MF picture book has won over the hearts of many readers, and has even acquired the Pura Belpre Award!
This sweet, humorous, rhyming tale shares the story of a cheery girl crossing paths with an eager prince and his overprotective mother.

caldwellalex95 "La Princesa and the Pea" can be incorporated in the classroom by having students engage their prior knowledge to predict various outcomes or parts of the story. Also, students can be taught to use their context clues. Elya's website, www.susanelya.com/L_princesa.htm, shares how this book is a wonderful RA choice due to its "playful illustrations" and designs. This book supports ESOL strategy #4, #17, and UDL's comprehension guideline (3.1). 4y
caldwellalex95 Overall, this colorful, diverse picture book is one I would recommend to anyone! #LAE3414SP19 4y
DrSpalding I have not seen a post on this book before. Excellent choice! I like the focus on books with different languages. They will be present in your classroom which means you are providing a mirror for your students! 4y
Edenmonet La Princesa and the Pea looks like such a cute book and I love that it is bilingual! ESOL kids will especially loves this because it has words that they will understand. Also, just like Dr. Spalding said this book can be a mirror for a Spanish speaking student, which is really important. 4y

I LOVE this book. We‘ve had it from the library forever and I‘m paying fines on it so I just need to buy it. Great rhythm and rhyme. Pretty (and expressive) illustrations. A wonderful mix of English and Spanish.

2018 Pura Belpre Award for Illustrator.

Winner of the 2018 Pura Belpré illustrator‘s Award, this retelling of the fairy tale has a Latino twist.

The gorgeous illustrations of embroidered clothing were inspired by the people of the Colca Canyon in Arequipa.
