Reviewer Comments:

Andrea Chen’s lessons for, House on Mango Street, is a great resource for teachers who are using the book for the first time. There Was an Old Woman, She Had So Many Children, She Didn’t Know What to Do gives students a format to reflect on the character’s challenges and pays particular attention to the character’s decisions. Students can interact with her questions either orally or in writing. This format gives teachers some freedom in terms of how he/she wants to interact with the book.
