Playing Loteria
Every once in awhile a story leaves an unforgettable mark on your soul . . . and this gorgeous tale does just that. A little boy visits his grandmother in Mexico, and with the help of la loteria, Mexican Bingo, learns a new language and how special the bond between a boy and his grandmother can be. An extraordinary heartwarming story for children functioning between a bilingual home and English school and friends, this book will be cherished for a lifetime. The text is presented in both English and Spanish for a sparkling bilingual experience.” -Alta Vista Book Center

Playing Loteria
"Even though a language barrier may separate children from their extended families, readers will learn that overcoming this barrier is possible by working hard to learn their ancestral language, and that learning another language is valuable for everyone."-Foreword Magazine

El juego de la loteria
El juego de la lotería escrito por René Colato Laínez es un encantador libro en el cual un niño y su abuela forjan una relación duradera y descubren maneras de demostrar su amor a pesar de las barreras del idioma. El niño siente vergüenza cuando visita a su abuela en México porque cree que no habla bien el español. Su abuela le quita el miedo y los dos aprenden inglés y español jugando lotería. Colato Laínez entiende muy bien las experiencias de los niños inmigrantes que descubren la belleza del español cuando visitan a sus parientes en Latinoamérica. -Christianne Meneses Jacobs, Revista Iguana.
