angry students shouldn't take laziness out on a good learning tool
Reviewed in the United States on February 28, 2012
It isn't fair for a student to take misplaced anger out on the author by giving them a low rating just because he or she did not want to do the assignment. I have been using the Pepino series for YEARS and the very reason I continued after the first year is because the students LOVE it ... love to laugh at Pepino, giggle at the Scooby-Doo quality, and actually love to work on learning how to READ Spanish, even if they do not understand all the vocabulary right away. My students are working on it together right now, laughing and asking questions; it's all in the attitude.
This is a very helpful book for high school students who are willing to do a little preparation work before trying to answer the questions. Great for upper level and any honours or distance learning student. It's not written for the plot; it's written to assist a student WANTS to learn to read in SPANISH.
