Level 2 Reader – Legends

Unique Word Count – Novice: 235
Unique Word Count – Intermediate: 295


Legends are stories that are traditionally passed from generation to generation, often evolving over time. Many types of legends exist. There are supernatural tales of the dead returned to life or terrifying monsters. There are religious tales, which tell of demons, saints, or miracles. There are legends that explain the origins of those things held most dear to a culture. And there are cautionary legends warning people of the dire consequences of unwise or immoral behavior. All of these types of legends abound in Latin America. Here you will find six exciting traditional tales that will inspire and captivate you!


Included in this reader:

    • La muchacha y el viento – Nahuatl (México)
    • La india Mariana – Argentina
    • El origen del maíz – Bolivia
    • La leyenda del coquí – Puerto Rico
    • El Sombrerón – Guatemala
    • El Silbón – Venezuela


The low unique word count and high frequency factor (the number of times core structures are embedded in the text) make this an ideal read for beginning and intermediate Spanish students. Each page is loaded with cognates (words that are similar in English and Spanish), recycled vocabulary, and illustrations, which makes this read highly comprehensible. Enjoy the story! The more you enjoy it, the more you will acquire Spanish without even realizing it! Happy reading!
