Inspired by true events, this story captures both the beauty and the dangers of the Galapagos Islands. Sonia Campos is a college student who is excited to study the famous Galapagos Islands tortoises, in the footsteps of her hero, Charles Darwin. When a freak accident causes her to have to stay behind as the group sets out on their first day of learning and exploring, she is crushed. The decisions she makes that day will mean life or death for Sonia and two new friends as they create their own adventure!
The low unique word count and high frequency factor (the number of times core structures are embedded in the text) in the Comprehension-based™ reader, ’48 horas’, make this an ideal read for beginning and advanced beginning Spanish students. Remember, the principle behind providing the this comprehension-based reader in two tenses is NOT to focus on grammar, but rather to focus on the story in the tense in which the reader and/or teacher feels most comfortable. Enjoy the story! The more you enjoy it, the more you will acquire Spanish without even realizing it! We hope you enjoy reading your way to FLUENCY!
