Emita y Emota en... ¿Ahora quién me aúpa?


"¿Ahora quién me aúpa?", pregunta Ema cuando está cansada de caminar. Entonces el papá Venancio la lleva de caballito. Y si se queda dormida en el sillón, también él la lleva en brazos hasta la cama. Un día todo se puso raro. Venancio no llegó silbando como siempre, ni le dio a Ema un beso en la nariz ni le revolvió el pelo con la mano.

"Who's picking me up now?" Ema asks when she's tired of walking. So dad Venancio takes her on a piggyback ride. And if she falls asleep on the couch, he carries her to bed, too. One day everything got weird. Venancio did not arrive whistling as usual, nor did he give Ema a kiss on the nose or ruffle her hair with his hand.

Teacher Comment(s):

"Emita y Emota is a sweet story about a little girl who is worried when her dad's behavior changes. That plot leads to many inferences and predictions about the reasons why Emita's dad is so worried. The text leads to great comparison between Emita  and Emota's actions and uses illustrations throughout the book to help the reader visualize the story."
