The Three Little Tamales, by Eric Kimmel, has earned our Seal of Approval


The Three Little Tamales, by Eric Kimmel, is the adorable adaptation of the commonly known children's book,  "The Three Little Pigs".  Kimmel's inventive retelling of this story includes three tamales who do not wish to be eaten.  When the tamales run away, they each build a different structure in which to live.  But when Senior Lobo (the big bad wolf) decides to make a meal out of them, he learns he is no match for the wits of these clever little tamales. 

Kimmel's literary talents are perfectly paired with wonderfully expressive and utterly delightful illustrations provided by Valerie Docampo.  This is a splendid book which also incorporates morsels of the Spanish language throughout the book helping kids to learn a bit of Spanish as they enjoy the antics of the three little tamales.

The Three Little Tamales comes highly recommended and has earned the Literary Classics Seal of Approval.
