La Llorona: The Legendary Weeping Woman of Mexico

The ghost of a weeping woman dressed in white, La Llorona, is often spotted beside bodies of water. People in Mexico and in the southwestern United States have claimed to hear her wailing in the night, crying out for her drowned children. This centuries-old legend says that if the wailing woman gets too close, she will drag you to a watery grave. The Capstone Interactive edition comes with simultaneous access for every student in your school and includes read aloud audio recorded by professional voice over artists.

Reviews

Horn Book

"In four engaging chapters (and after a creepy introduction) Peterson presents the story of the legendary La Llorona. The text touches on background, reported encounters, speculation about the weeping woman’s existence, and “Ladies in White Around the World.” “Fact” and “Skeptic’s Note” sidebars along with haunting illustrations enhance the atmosphere." - Horn Book

School Library Journal - Carol Goldman, formerly at Queens Library, NY

"Clear, punchy, occasionally gory prose engages, yet the overall tone is non-sensational. Eye-catching covers and weird visuals enhance the spooky appeal. “Skeptic’s Note” sidebars offer possible explanations or alternate viewpoints. . . .Engrossing for ghost story and “history mysteries” fans in public and school libraries. In journalism or creative writing units, students can write news stories about or interviews with haunted individuals." - School Library Journal

Booklist - Selenia Paz

"The efficient text is accompanied by “Skeptic’s Notes” and “Fact” boxes that add detail, suggesting that La Llorona may simply be legend. Open-ended questions encourage young readers to pause and consider the evidence. Photographs of ghostly women are paired with historical art, all of which combine to elevate the haunting atmosphere. . . .An excellent choice for readers who are or aren’t familiar with La Llorona, allowing them to decide for themselves whether or not she’s real." - Booklist
