After reading many autobiographical stories Suni's appeared, filled with a million histories, told with clear and involving language.
Her work reunites the indispensable prerequisites to a good reading and transports us to our own history. Dear Suni, I just wrote you a long letter.

I know you have the right to choose what to include in your book but I had questions though. I wanted more information about your relationship with your mother in order to appreciate the meaning of the chapter when you were taking care of her.

Publishers Weekly : Armed with her new blue bookbag, Maria Isabel bravely faces her first day at a new school. But when she meets her new teacher, she is told there are already two other Marias in the class. Maria's inability to respond to "Mary" leads to more problems.
Simply told, this story combines the struggle of a Puerto Rican family's efforts to improve their life with a shared sense of pride in their heritage. The author's carefully drawn characterizations avoid stereotypes, thus increasing their appeal and believability.
An essay involving a wish list gives Maria a chance to reclaim her name, and allows her teacher to make amends. Abetted by Thompson's straightforward black-and-white drawings, this contemporary tale serves as a good reminder that no two names are really alike. And here's an earlier reading by Vienna Rose, and an even earlier reading. Maria Isabel finds it hard to respond to a name that does not seem like hers. Her teacher doesn't understand why it is so difficult for her to answer to "Mary" until the child is inspired to address her paper on "My Greatest Wish" to the topic of her name.
The result is not only a happy ending, but also an affirming study of heritage and how it is integrally bound up in an individual's sense of self. The brief text, adequately extended by line drawings, reads aloud well and could certainly be used in conjunction with Gary Soto's The Skirt Delacorte, to illustrate the Hispanic culture that is part of the lives of many contemporary children. Since she doesn't readily recognize this new name, Maria Isabel is continually scolded for being inattentive; worse, her pride in being named for her grandmothers is dishonored.
Maria Isabel's reluctance to assert her wish to be called by her full name involves her in an apparent web of deception when she doesn't get a part in a pageant she doesn't recognize her name when the teacher is assigning roles but lets her parents believe she'll participate. Cuban author Ada The Gold Coin, captures the authentic flavor of Latino culture in this warm, yet never sentimental, story: an entire family genealogy is encapsulated in a Latino name, as well as special connections between its bearer and the relatives for whom she was named.
Presented in realistic terms, Maria Isabel's struggles will ring true to many children in the US. Can she find a way to make her teacher see that if she loses her name, she's lost the most important part of herself? Karla Rodriguez : This chapter book is about a little girl, Maria Isabel, who has to go through the usual challenges of being a new student. Her biggest problem, however, is to be called Mary Lopez by her teacher instead of the name she was born with and is supremely proud of-Maria Isabel Salazar Sanchez.
To her, this name has so much meaning because of her grandparents and feels that it is one of the most important aspects about her. Throughout the book she struggles to find the courage to stand up for the way she feels and to be understood by her teacher. I like this book because it highlights the Hispanic culture which allows Latino students to feel empowered but also encourages respect and acceptance of other cultures since they are focused on as well.

Currently, I am using Maria Isabel for a book club and will use it to teach literacy while integrating social studies, math, art, and issues of social justice. Literacy ideas:character analysis, reading comprehension strategies, learning of literary elements, persuasive writing, text to self connections, text to text connections. Children of Hispanic culture are encouraged to love and accept themselves. This book deals with racism and oppression. The method in which Maria Isabel stands up for herself is through a courage driven, detailed essay to the teacher describing why her culture is so important and why devaluing her name and culture is like overlooking the biggest part of her.
Students will see how these small social movements can easily be done within the classroom community. This book can easily connect to the literacy curricular unit but not limited to the subjects that have been mentioned above.

Through this text, Alma Flor Ada, a native of Cuba, shares the daily life of a Puerto Rican family without preaching or prescribing.
The plot is simple and uncrowded, told in the uncomplicatedly elegant language of a young girl finding her place in a new environment.
