Title: Nino Wrestles The World By: Yuyi Morales


Morales, Y. (2013). Nino wrestles the world (1st ed.). New York: Roaring Brook Press.

Short Annotation: This book is about a Nino who fights off the bad to save others. He is a brave boy, who is courageous, and mighty.

Genre: Fiction

Grade Level: K-5

Intended Readers: Students who enjoy the captain underpants series, but who also wants to engage themselves in Spanish.

Personal Response: This book reminds me of the captain underpants series because this boy is also in his underwear fighting crime. However, it’s the Spanish version of the captain underpants series. I would rate this book 5 out of 5 stars because it’s extremely funny.

Text Dependent Question: How many creatures did the Niño fight off?


Reading Strategy: Story Retelling

As a teacher you would read the story aloud to the students, then after you would have the students retell the story in their own words.

Rationale: This strategy is great for comprehension, and oral language. Also, I believe the students would have a fun time retelling this story to another classmate or the teacher.
