It's almost bedtime! At I Hoppin Place the fun begins when a family of hamsters--with ten offspring wearing jerseys numbered from one to ten--arrives at the door. There are only ten minutes left, and there's still so much to do! But with the help of the Hamsters' 10-Minute Bedtime Tour (guided by his own per hamster), the little boy is able to get his toys put away, his pajamas on, his teeth brushed, and his bedtime story read--all in the nick of time. This lively introduction to bedtime rituals and the concept of counting backwards will have young readers eagerly awaiting their own countdown to bedtime.

Asi es como la pierdes

More Info
Así es como la pierdes es un libro sobre mujeres que quitan el sentido y sobre el amor y el ardor. Y sobre la traición porque a veces traicionamos lo que más queremos, y también es un libro sobre el suplicio que pasamos después -los ruegos, las lágrimas, la sensación de estar atravesado un campo de minas- para intentar recuperar lo que perdimos. Aquello que creíamos que no queríamos, que no nos importaba. Estos cuentos nos enseñan las leyes fijas del amor: que la desesperanza de los padres, la acaban sufriendo los hijos, que lo que les hacemos a nuestros ex amantes nos lo harán inevitablemente a nosotros, y que aquello de "amar al prójimo como a uno mismo" no funciona bajo la influencia de Eros. Pero sobre todo, estos cuentos nos recuerdan que el ardor siempre triunfa sobre la experiencia, y que el amor, cuando llega de verdad, necesita más de una vida para desvanecerse.

Finalist for the 2012 National Book Award


A Time and People Top 10 Book of 2012Finalist for the 2012 Story PrizeChosen as a notable or best book of the year by The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, The LA Times, Newsday, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, the iTunes bookstore, and many more...
Electrifying. -The New York Times Book Review
"Exhibits the potent blend of literary eloquence and street cred that earned him a Pulitzer Prize... Díaz's prose is vulgar, brave, and poetic." -O Magazine
From the award-winning author, a stunning collection that celebrates the haunting, impossible power of love.
On a beach in the Dominican Republic, a doomed relationship flounders. In a New Jersey laundry room, a woman does her lover's washing and thinks about his wife. In Boston, a man buys his love child, his only son, a first baseball bat and glove. At the heart of these stories is the irrepressible, irresistible Yunior, a young hardhead whose longing for love is equaled only by his recklessness--and by the extraordinary women he loves and loses.
In prose that is endlessly energetic, inventive, tender, and funny, these stories lay bare the infinite longing and inevitable weakness of the human heart. They remind us that passion always triumphs over experience, and that "the half-life of love is forever."

More Info

La célebre autora de La casa en Mango Street, y ganadora del PEN/Nabokov Award for Achievement in International Literature 2019, nos ofrece una nueva y extraordinaria novela narrada en un lenguaje de una originalidad arro-lladora: es la historia de varias generaciones de una familia méxicoamericana cuyas voces crean un des-lumbrante y vivo tapiz de humor y de pasión, hecho con la esencia misma de la vida.

La abuela de Lala Reyes es descendiente de una familia de afamados reboceros. El rebozo de rayas color caramelo es el más bello de todos y aquél que llega a pertenecer a Lala, al igual que la historia familiar que éste representa. La novela comienza con el viaje anual en automóvil de los Reyes--una caravana desbordante de niños, risas y pleitos-- desde Chicago hasta el «otro lado» la Ciudad de México. Es aquí que Lala cada año escucha las historias de su familia y trata de separar la verdad de las «mentiras sanas» que han resonado de una generación a otra. Viajamos desde la Ciudad de México, que era el «París del Nuevo Mundo» a las calles llenas de música de Chicago en los albores de los locos años veinte y, finalmente, a la difícil adolescencia de Lala en la tierra no tan exactamente prometida de San Antonio, Texas.

Caramelo es una historia sabia, vital y romántica, sobre el lugar de origen, algunas veces real, algu-nas veces imaginado. Vívida, graciosa, íntima e histórica, es una obra brillante destinada a convertirse en un clásico: una nueva novela de gran importancia de una de las escritoras más queridas de nuestro país.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

From the winner of the 2018 PEN/Nabokov Award for Achievement in International Literature.

Every year, Ceyala "Lala" Reyes' family--aunts, uncles, mothers, fathers, and Lala's six older brothers--packs up three cars and, in a wild ride, drive from Chicago to the Little Grandfather and Awful Grandmother's house in Mexico City for the summer. Struggling to find a voice above the boom of her brothers and to understand her place on this side of the border and that, Lala is a shrewd observer of family life. But when she starts telling the Awful Grandmother's life story, seeking clues to how she got to be so awful, grandmother accuses Lala of exaggerating. Soon, a multigenerational family narrative turns into a whirlwind exploration of storytelling, lies, and life. Like the cherished rebozo, or shawl, that has been passed down through generations of Reyes women, Caramelo is alive with the vibrations of history, family, and love.

De que rio se nos habla en ese extrano exilio que es la escritura?
En el primero de los dos textos que constituyen esta obra, Biografia ilustrada de Mishima, el ilustre autor japones reflexiona, aunque carece de cabeza y se le dificulta la creacion de palabras. Mishima habia advertido, sobre todo en los ultimos tiempos, que no podia haber una sin la otra. Tambien se da cuenta de que el mecanismo podia consistir en colocar un universo terrible como si fuese una suerte de escudo contra lo que ese mismo mundo iba produciendo.
En el segundo texto, Los fantasmas del masajista, Joao se dedica a dar alivio a quienes padecen dolor debido a deformidades o mutilaciones fisicas, en tanto que su madre es una gran declamadora. Ambos se ven unidos, mas alla de la muerte de ella, por su misteriosa reencarnacion en el cuerpo de un loro.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONIn Biografia ilustrada de Mishima, the first of two texts that make up this work, the illustrious Japanese author is deep in reflection--even though he is headless and has a difficulty creating words. Lately, Mishima has reached the conclusion that one cannot exist without the other. He also realizes that the mechanism could lie in placing a terrible universe as a kind of shield to protect against what that same universe is producing. In Los fantasmas del masajista, Joao works with people who suffer from pain due to physical deformities or mutilations while his mother is a brilliant orator. The bond between mother and son grows stronger when, after her death, she mysteriously reincarnates in the body of a parrot.

Overwhelmingly, what students want is conversation practice. The majority of the students that have taken classes with me aren't learning it for academic credit. They want to travel abroad, have better professional opportunities, or communicate with loved ones who are Spanish speakers.The strategy in this workbook is what I use in live classes. It has been extremely successful for students of all ages. In addition, it's how my husband improves his English. Since his needs are for immediate communication within the house, with myself and our daughters. I start by introducing the yo form only with regular verbs. Students only have to remember the -o ending (Traditional workbooks teach 12 new pronouns and 6 endings for every verb). Then, we add in the tú form, with two more endings, so that we can ask and answer questions. By doing this, students speak right away. They are also practicing to most used forms of the verb, (yo and tú), which is more practical for their goals. This is why you will find common verbs and vocabulary that can be used in everyday life, around the house, or in the car. Students who are able to practice the vocabulary on a daily basis are more likely to retain it, as well as continue to study Spanish. This book focuses on the present and preterite tenses, specifically for conversational purposes. You will practice conjugating 20 common verbs with interrogatives, and over 250 common vocabulary words. This is the first in a series, where you can choose to expand and continue on to learn more tenses and verb forms.
