Noche de Oro PREVIEW
Now a college student, Makenna Parker returns to Costa Rica for a new ecological adventure. As a volunteer at a wildlife preserve in Guanacaste, she finds unexpected romance that lands her right in the middle of a perilous scheme. Does her new boyfriend really have good intentions, and what are he and his stepfather really up to? Will Makenna discover the truth before it’s too late?
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!
