Read full description of the books Chato Y Su Cena/Chato's Kitchen:"Chato's Kitchen" by Gary Soto would be a great way to introduce a Latin-American or an Hispanic unit. Combining Spanish and English, "Chato's Kitchen" is a trickster tale about a cat attempting to fool a family of mice by inviting them to dinner. Though the book includes animal characters, it utilizes a good number of polite Spanish phrases and introduces readers to a number of delicious Latin dishes. This book would be a great way to introduce these new phrases and vocabulary, because the book includes a Spanish to English glossary and a number of great examples of vocabulary developed through context clues. Furthermore, "Chato's Kitchen" easily lends itself to teaching prediction skills through a DRTA and could the pictures could easily be used during an emotions or feelings lesson plan.
