My Land Sings: Stories from the Río Grande

'“Contains compelling twists that will keep the pages turning.” —Publishers Weekly   “Filled with ghosts, devils, and tricksters, these cuentos are suffused with the beliefs of the peoples in the Rio Grande region. . . . Anaya champions the reading of a good book or listening to a folktale as an opportunity to insert one’s own experiences into the story and, hence, to nurture the imagination. This appealing volume will add diversity to folklore collections.” —Library Journal   “Every story spins its magic effectively. Best of all, beyond their solid entertainment value and read-aloud potential, the engaging tales allegorically extol solid virtues (obeying one’s parents, creating luck through hard work, keeping vows, being charitable) that readers can easily grasp.” —Booklist   “The wide variety of stories demonstrate a mature understanding of life’s trappings and dangers, but retain a healthy sense of humor about the human predicament.” —Kirkus Reviews   “Perfect to use as an introduction to the Hispanic culture of the Southwest.” —Multicultural Review  '
