    I read and lesson planned this book when I student taught Spanish I to 7th and 8th graders Any review I write will not do the book justice because it s been a long time and deserving of a reread Definitely a great learning tool and Hispanic historical novel to read to middle school students.

    This book was, I suppose, a good educational read rather a beginner s Grapes of Wrath from a Mexican perspective It covers very difficult issues of race, class difference, child labor and death with tact and a certain amount of gentleness.But overall after I was finished I could not help but be faced with the difficult feeling that Esparanza, while being an incredibly strong young woman and a good role model in that sense, often overlooks the immorality and unfairness of her situation in order to continue living and doing what she has to do I mean, that s a totally valid theme and it s in many ways honorable of her but given the horrible situation she s in, there are a lot of questions that arise Esparanza is a 13 year old pulled out of school, subjected to backbreaking and agonizing child labor and essentially orphaned This is a terrible situation for a child to be in, but the close of the book lauds Esparanza for the great, strong person that she has become for her hard work Look She knows how to cook now Look She knows how to work hard instead of being pamp...
