  BibliotecaRosaDuarte | Dec 11, 2019 |
Genre: Folklore
Age: Intermidiate
Review/Critique: A girl named Maria lives on a farm that is failing. Her dad goes to the market and brings back some Oranges. Maria has a dream that they should plant the orange seeds and the farm becomes very successful because of it. The book is folklore because it is based on the stories that the author heard as a child from her ansestors.
Media: Drawings ( )

Review/Critique:
When Maria's family's olive crop fails, she is met in a dream by Nuestra Senora de la Altagracia. The lady tells her to plant oranges instead of olives, and once they do, Maria's family's crop thrives. This is a story about belief and trusting while also having a focus on family.

This is good fantasy fiction because many of the elements and characters in this book are relatable for children, yet parts of the book would not be able to happen on earth.

This is a story about a Spanish family who had moved from Spain. Their crops were not doing well and they were thinking about having to sell the farm and move to the city. The daughter Maria has a dream one night about how to save the farm. The next day the family plants orange trees. The trees grew remarkably fast and produced an abundance. Maria gave thanks to the lady in her dream and asked her father to bring her back a picture of the lady from the market. Her father couldn't find a picture, but her grandfather brought back a quilt with a lady painted on it who he had seen in the sky. This lady was the same one Maria had seen. The family gave thanks to the lady for their orange crop. ( )
