Descrizione

La Llorona (yoh-RROH-nah) / The Weeping Woman is the ghost story to end all ghost stories, capturing the minds of both kids and adults in the U.S. and Mexico. In Spanish and English, master storyteller JOE HAYES retells the tale of a beautiful woman whose fear and jealousy dooms her to an eternal search for all she’s lost. It appears at first to be only a frightening story filled with mysterious events that cause children to sit wide-eyed, huddling together, listening spellbound. Yet it’s the simple, universal wisdom at the core of the story that finally works its magic in their hearts.

La Llorona es el cuento de fantasmas que supera todos los otros. Por generaciones, ha cautivado las imaginaciones de ambos niños y adultos en México y los Estados Unidos. En español e ingles, el maestro autor JOE HAYES cuenta la historia de los celos y miedo que condenó a una bella mujer a una búsqueda eternal por todo lo que perdió. Primero parece ser solo una historia espantosa, llena de eventos misteriosos, que causa que niños se sientan cerca, completamente fascinados. Pero es la sabiduría simple y universal al centro de la historia que trabaja como magia en sus corazones.

La Llorona is available in a four-color edition in both paper and cloth. Joe’s chilling story of the crying ghost woman has sold over 600,000 copies and is truly the best known and most popular story of Hispanic America.

    La Llorona/The Weeping Woman the legend about La Llorona, when I was a little girl. I was always scared of La Llorna sort of like the boogyman. La Llorna brings fear to children that disobey their parents. The book has great illustrations not too scary for young children. The book is written in English and Spanish.

    The tale of La Llorona (The Weeping Woman) is familiar cautionary tale that many of my students' parents tell to keep their children inside at night. What may not be as well-known to my fourth graders is that this story has been told for hundreds of years in the Southwest, including California. Author Joe Hayes writes a bilingual story about how, in a fit of jealousy, a young mother drowned her children. Even though she immediately regretted her decision, she was not able to bring her children back to life. Hayes explains that this is why (especially on windy nights) La Llorona can be seen dressed in white and heard crying for her missing children. Vicki Trego Hill and Mona Pennypacker's illustrations are delightfully creepy. "Is the story really true?" Hayes asks. " Who knows? Some claim that it is . Others say that it isn't. But the old ones still tell it to the children, just as they heard it themselves when they were young."

    Used as a read aloud for students. It's a spooky story passed down from generations to children to keep them from going outside in the dark or by rivers. Not recommended for ages younger than 9. I would be careful with this but it could be one that students choose on their own rather than a whole class read-aloud.
