About «Green Is a Chile Pepper »
Green is a Chile Pepper by Roseanne Greenfield Thong is a wonderful concept book for young learners, even up to the lower primary grades. Through the use of rhyme, Green is a Chile Pepper teachers readers the concept of color. The best part is that this book isn’t like the typical concept book, it is bilingual! Green is a Chile Pepper uses Spanish and English to not only teach the colors but to also provide readers with a sense of Hispanic cultures. I think the book is fantastic! I would use it in my classroom – especially if it were diverse – to provide students with a chance to see a world culture other than their own, or for students to see their culture represented in literature. I would highly recommend this book to parents or teachers who either represent multiple cultural backgrounds or those who are living in diverse communities.
