Book Giveaway!! The Red Umbrella

It’s time for another giveaway! This month we’re giving away 5 copies of The Red Umbrella (written by Christina Diaz Gonzalez)–our featured novel for December’s book group meeting!! It’s a beautifully written book that tells the story of one girl’s journey to the United States as part of Operation Pedro Pan–the organized transplanting of 14,000 children from Cuba to the United States in the early years following the revolution.  To be entered in the giveaway, just comment on any post on the blog by NOVEMBER 14TH. Everyone who comments between October 10th and November 14th will be entered in the drawing.  It’s a great way to add to your personal teaching library! If your name is chosen, we’ll email you ASAP about mailing the book to you.

Good luck!

Update: We’ve extended our giveaway until November 14th! You have a few more days to comment and be entered into the drawing!!

    • Hi Doris! We’ve got your name in our drawing! Unfortunately, from what I could find the book is not available in Spanish yet. It seems like they may try and get it translated at some point in the future though. The book does incorporate some Spanish though–even if you couldn’t use it it in it’s entirety, you may be able to use sections of it.

    • I thought it was a really well-written story. It was the first young adult novel I’d read that discussed Operation Pedro Pan from the point of view of a child who was sent to the U.S. If you get a chance to read it, I’d love to hear what you think!

      • Thank you. When I have a chance to read this interesting book, I’d love to write a review for it! 🙂
