However, her dreams are shot down once her father says that she is too little for the job; plus, she’s a girl and no one’s ever heard of a girl glassblower.

The language used is simple, but still provides opportunities for children to learn new words, for example, the term swallow. I would definitely recommend this book for any young girl. Recommended for any grade as a read aloud, campbelk.

Join Elena on her fantastic journey to Monterrey — home of the great glassblowers!

Elena’s Serenade

Scattered throughout the story, the author includes some Spanish words. The story effectively tells of a young girl who is able to achieve her dreams through her own creativity and determination. She sneaks into town and goes to the glass factory asking to be a glass blower. This book would be great to use because of the little girl who is the main character. Elena refuses to give up her dream so disguises herself as a boy and sets off to the city of Monterrey, which is notorious for it’s talented glassworkers.


Animals decide to help her get to the town faster because of the sounds that come out of the pipe. The little girl shows everyone that she is a very talented glass blower that can not only blow glass, but also play music on her pipe too.

This however doesn’t deter the main character, she decides to dress up like a man so that she can be taught how to be a glass blower. Elenits see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. So, Elena decides to embark on a journey to Monterrey, where her brother says as the best glassblowers are. The characters, setting, and story capture some of Mexico’s culture, but with a magical flare.

This book is a good book to use to discuss bravery, determination, beeslin individuality. I also think that it is a good piece of Mexican culture because of the setting and the use of Spanish words throughout the book. Elena though doesn’t let his reasons stop her from fulfilling her dream. On her brother’s advice, she dresses as a boy, grabs a glassblowing tube and makes the long journey on foot to Monterrey Mexico where she can apprentice with the best glassblowers.

Pictures aren’t ccampbell test but good enough!

Campbsll illustra A story of a little Mexican girl who wants to be a glassblower like her papa, only he says girls aren’t glassblowers. At that point she realizes how much her father means to her and blows a glass bird so that she can be carried home to share her talent with her father who then realizes that she is extremely talented.

She continues to blow glass to the tune of various songs she makes up, and each time, the glass takes the form elenitx whatever the song is about a swallow, stars, butterflies, etc. Sep 21, Karen Hixson rated it really liked it. This book is engaging both visually and linguistically and would be a great read aloud for elementary classes, especially kindergarten through 3rd grade. She takes the journey and encounters problems on the way and re I found the book very interesting and appealing for students.

In the ending they both work together to make glass.
