The Old Man and His Door

by

The Old Man and His Door Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Who would bring the door, la puerta, to a picnic instead of the pig, el puerco? An old man who's great at gardening but lousy at listening to his wife! "In the universal tradition of the wise-fool story, this gentle disaster tale is funny and affectionate....The combination is great for reading aloud." — Booklist "Cepeda makes brilliant use of color, form, and perspective to add humor to the work. It's a story children will want to retell themselves." — Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Who would bring the door, "la puerta", to a picnic instead of the pig, "el puerco"? An old man who's great at gardening but lousy at listening to his wife! "A playful original folktale that is sure to get laughs".--"School Library Journal". Illustrations.

Through several national projects, she has conducted research and provided professional development and technical assistance to local and state education agencies across the United States. She directed the ESL Standards and Assessment Project for TESOL and co-developed the SIOP model for sheltered instruction. Dr. Tinajero specializes in staff development and school-university partnership programs and has consulted with school districts in the U.S. to design ESL, bilingual, literacy, and bi-literacy programs. She has served on state and national advisory committees for standards development, including the English as a New Language Advisory Panel of the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards and the Texas Reading Academies. She is currently professor of Education and Interim Dean of the College of Education at the University of Texas at El Paso and was President of the National Association for Bilingual Education, 1997-2000. Dr. Schifini assists schools across the nation and around the world in developing comprehensive language and literacy programs for English learners.
