MARTINA THE BEAUTIFUL COCKROACH by Carmen Agra Deedy was an Odyssey Honor audio. I finally got a copy and listened to it (the book is required reading for children's lit). There are three tracks. On Track One, Deedy presents her storyteller's version; Track Two is her reading the book; Track Three is her reading the book in Spanish. I loved all three. I listened to them over and over again (the drive is about 2 hours). Now, I cannot get the refrain from my head: "Margarita Josephina, Catalina Cucaracha, Beautiful muchacha, Won't you be my wife?"
Spent the day talking about books, reading books, evaluating books. Drove back home. Now off to bed shortly. Tomorrow's post will include the second audio I finished on the drive today.
