Three Kings Day is coming, and Marcos wants to be sure that Kings Baltasar, Gaspar, and Melchor know exactly what gift to bring him. He puts forth great effort to communicate with the kings, and quickly finds himself face to face with the WRONG king. Will evil King Herod ruin Three Kings Day?
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 advanced beginning 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!
