About this book
Before Reading Borreguita and the Coyote
Tell the class that you are about to share a book set in Mexico. Locate Mexico on a map. From the cover, can the children infer anything about the climate or terrain of Mexico? What do they notice about the colors the artist used on the cover? Have children study the cover of the book to see if they can discover any clues telling what the book is about. Record the children's guesses on a chalkboard or on a chart pad.
After Reading Borreguita and the Coyote
Compare the children's storyline predictions with the actual story. Were students able to guess correctly what the story was about? Ask the class if it is always possible to judge a book by its cover. Have the children locate books in your class library that do not have especially revealing covers.
