At circle this morning, Katee and I read a book called “What Can You Do With a Paleta?” by Carmen Tafolla. I read the English words and Katee read the same words in Spanish. The book is written from the perspective of a small child. She tells us all about the sounds, smells and colors of her neighborhood. The most exciting thing of all is the sound of the tinkly bell coming from the Paleta wagon.

This book inspired the children to make their own pretend paleta wagon complete with a bell and paper paletas. ..
