Great service and fantastic condition

Great, fast service and the book was in new condition.

The Corn Grows Ripe

The Corn Grows Ripe is a great book. I like this book because it relates to my life. It's a foreign, modern day-book written in English. The author gave me the idea of how the people lived with their country, religion, and cultures. I would recommend this book to anybody who likes to learn about foreign cultures. Since they don't have technology like us, it's interesting to read about how they solve medical and governmental problems. That's why I would recommend this book to them.

You Can Accomplish Anything

I am a fourth grade teacher who recently read this book with my reading class. I chose it because it showed that an ordinary child was faced with a seemingly impossible challenge that he overcame with perseverance. Throughout the story, the children watched Tigre slowly take on more and more responsibilty and become successful at his tasks. Although some of the voacbulary was above them, they enjoyed watching the boy mature.

Excellent book for use in classroom teaching of Ancient Maya

I teach sixth grade and use The Corn Grows Ripe in my classroom. I teach a unit on the Ancient Mayans. This book is a great teaching tool. Not only do the students learn about the customs and family life of the Ancient Maya, but they also learn some of the Spanish language as well. We create a Spanish dictionary while reading the book. Good easy-read for all levels of readers in your classroom.
