"Eric Blair brings to the young reader the legendary Aesop fable, El asno vestido de leon (The Donkey in the Lion's Skin). Children will be engaged when they read how a silly donkey, having put on a lion's skin, roams about in the forest frightening all the animals, but as soon as a fox hears the silly donkey bray, he knows who the real animal is. The moral of the fable invites kids to read, write, and discuss moral lessons. This retelling includes colorful and imaginative illustrations. In this fascinating version, the story is told in Spanish with simple language that is easy to read, as it is in all the titles of this series. The series will be a great opportunity for Spanish-speaking readers or bilingual children to develop strength in the Spanish language. Other titles in the series are La gansa de los huevos de oro, El escabel de gato, El leon y el raton, La cigarra y la hormiga, El pastorcito mentiroso, El raton de campo y el raton de cuidad, El cuervo y la jarra, El lobo y el perro, La zorra y las uvas, La liebre y la tortuga, El lobo con piel de oveja. Recommended." - Library Media Connection

"This blue level book, a part of the “Read-it! Readers” Spanish series, provides colorful and vibrant illustrations to accompany the text. The introduction of the story begins with the definition of a fable for children and the identification of Aesop’s fables. In this story, children will read about a donkey that the author deems lacking in intelligence because he decides to don a lion’s skin that he finds on one of his walks. The donkey then decides to frighten all the animals that live in the forest, and people are not immune to his prank. In his practical joke, he inadvertently lets out a bray and a clever fox realizes that he is not a lion after all but a donkey underneath the lion’s skin. Young readers can discuss the moral to the story after reading this fable. An Accelerated Reader quiz is available for this selection. The blue level in this series introduces new ideas, larger vocabulary, and a variety of language structures for beginning readers." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database Newsletter
