    1. It was a fun mixed English/Spanish book with proverbs but direct translations from Spanish. I wish it put the equivalent English proverbs at the end. I loved the actual story part. It had two conflicts in it but didn't seem overwhelming. A great read.


    2. I truly enjoyed this story of a boy who makes multiple attempts to gather mangos for his party and the funny mishaps he encounters along the way. Sacre knows how to capture an audience with his humor and beautifully weave in lessons he's learned from his family and Cuban culture.


    3. One could read this multiple times with kids and get more specific about all of the proverbs each time- lots to talk about in this cute story of a boy trying his best to complete a challenge but showing his generous character in the end.


    4. Francisco is finally old enough to go gather mangos on his own for his family dinner. He is so excited, but when he arrives at the mango tree, he encounters some difficulties. Each time he returns home for help, his father encourages him to go back and try again. Finally, Francisco manages to gather mangos only to give them all away to relatives on his journey home. This is a story filled with proverbs about love, sharing, and solving problems. This book is a great story to read to children in e [...]


    5. In honor of his saint day, Francisco's parents plan a celebration and allow him to harvest the mangos. But bees hover above the delicious fruit, and he returns empty-handed. After applying his father's advice, he obtains mangos but then gives them away to all the neighbors and relatives who encouraged him. Once again, he returns home with no fruit. But someone has an unexpected gift for him. With proverbs and Spanish phrases woven throughout the story, this title celebrates many of the cultural [...]


    6. Antonio Scare weaves beautiful proverbs into this light-hearted story about Francisco getting mangos for his Saint Day celebration! A Saint Day celebration calls for a feast, and Francisco is finally old enough to get the mangos for his family all on his own. He must conquer many feats to get to the mangos. Francisco learns many things about himself, his family, and life in general. Besides the beautiful heartwarming story and lovely illustrations, Sacre also writes all of the proverbs in Spanis [...]


    7. This is a great book that shows young children a new language while learning other cultures. It is about a boy named Francisco who is sent for mangos in a tree down the street. This book is in English however there are a few phrases and words through that are in Spanish. At the end of the book it explains the words and phrases in English and in Spanish. This book would great for early education classrooms like 1st and 2nd graders. I would use this book to introduce the new culture and Spanish to [...]


    8. Fantastic story with so many educational possibilities--it's bilingual, the character must show an impressive growth mindset (he keeps trying despite difficulties), there is character redemption through kind acts, the plot is a wonderful example of rising action with plenty of places to predict and analyze, and the ultimate climax is about connections among people. This story can be used at home or in a classroom on so many levels.


    9. Brightly colored illustrations enhance this delightful story of Francisco going to pick mangos for dessert all by himself. He has to overcome some obstacles and make decisions on his own and he does this with guidance from his family. Sprinkled with Spanish sayings (“Amor con amor se paga. Love is repaid with love.”), A Mango in the Hand captures a sense of community. This is the story of Francisco's adventure about picking mangos, but it is also about the "village" raising a child.


    10. A lovely multicultural story that makes heavy use of proverbs. Francisco has predictable, amusing problems and his family is supportive and loving. I loved the bright, vibrant illustrations in the story. There is a lot of Spanish sprinkled in and non-Spanish speakers (like me!) will want to prepare well before reading this one aloud. I also thought that the story was pretty long; younger students may require a bit of modification or activity during a read aloud.


    11. This book was very sweet! I loved how a young boy was motivated by his family to keep trying and to reach a goal: grab some mangoes. I also knew most of these proverbs because I heard them from my family growing up. It can be a great book to teach younger children some Spanish and to also keep persevering to reach a goal!


    12. In my stack today, this was probably one of my favorites. I liked the multi-cultural/multi-lingual aspect of the book as well as the lesson learned by the child during that time frame. Francisco learns a lot of lessons today on his special day.






    13. Hispanic proverbs and Spanish phrases woven throughout offer layers of meaning and interest to this sweet story about Francisco and his quest to pick mangos for his saint day celebration.


    14. Loved the hispanic proverbs and phrases mixed throughout (must learn them so I can sound all wise and stuff) and the story was sweet and valuable.



    15. This is a great book on the importance of sharing and why do we share. I would introduce this book at the beginning of the school year.
