  • What I really liked about this book was how, despite its brevity, the reader is able to quickly be drawn into the story Miata and her friend Ana are such appealing characters Miata has left her folklorico, her colorful dancing skirt, on the bus, and it s Saturday morning and she needs it to dance in on Sunday How will she get it back by then So much was made of the traditional Mexican dance that I wished the book had come with a video so I could see it I also wish Gary Soto would write books ab [...]

  • Once again, Gary Soto delivers another slice of life that falls into the adorable category Don t be deceived by its adorability into thinking that this short story doesn t have substance It does Soto is clever in the way he creates a text that is fun for a young adult audience to read, and yet rich in nuance for adults to read Every middle school aged child can relate to Miata and Ana sneaking around to find what they lost, trying not to get caught by parents or other adults And every adult can [...]


  • I liked this early chapter book a lot There was enough narrative tension to keep you wondering what would happen, but it was resolved in a nice slow denouement with a beautiful twist These days it seems like much kids and YA literature always has to have a giant over the top climax with like 1 page of denouement The pacing felt very real life I liked that the main character reflected about her character traits and flaws always losing stuff but it didn t turn into a moralizing lesson or anything [...]

  • An easy and fun read Soto weaves Mexican American culture in to a story any child can relate to losing something important and going on an adventure to find it But by having the protagonist be Mexican American and losing something of cultural value, Soto gives Hispanic students a chance to see themselves in a positive light in literature Soto uses Spanish phrases throughout the book and describes other cultural markers such as when Ana s grandmother answers the phone and speaks in Spanish He als [...]

  • Guided Reading Level NSummary Miata has left the beautiful folkloric skirt her mother wore in Mexico on the bus She was going to wear the skirt on Sunday when her dance group performed My Take This is a good book for students in two different ways the reading level and the content Students develop a better understanding for another culture and an item that some may value The skirt is an object used to show how a young Mexican girl is involved in her community and her culture She loses the skirt, [...]


  • I would recommend this book to a third or fourth grader I liked the cultural references but not every Spanish term was explained within the text For that reason, I would say it would be a good book to recommend to Spanish speakers or to a child who in addition to this novel may be reading other nonfiction about Mexican food and culture to supplement the book I think it was a good book about an elementary school child dealing with an age appropriate concern The overall tone of this book is lighth [...]


  • This book is about a Mexican American girl who leaves her mothers special skirt on her bus She then needs to undergo a journey with a friend of hers in order to get the skirt back She wants to wear it do to a special dance and cannot wear it unless she retrieves it back I would use this book to demonstrate the importance of the skirt to children in my class and the values of those of other cultures.


  • When i first started reading this book i thought it would be a good book and it was easy and i thought we were going to have a great time reading , but then when i kept on reading the book it got so boring and i didnt like it at all This book is so horrible and i dont like it because it doesnt get to the point Our class mates didnt understand what was the book about and i didnt either I think that the author should of included details and should of included funny parts and .


  • When I Read the First 2 Pages with my Class Mates I Thought it would be a good book , But then i got Completely Lost I Think this book is too easy The only thing i liked about it was that it had Some spanish words I Dont Recommend This book to anybody Because it is really Boring i would give it a 1 out of 5.


  • I have to apologize to my seventh grade class for choosing this book to read as a group Usually Gary Soto books are pretty good Living Up the Street was a good read , but this is horrible Not only is it boring, but it s hard to remember what happened and what the point of the story is Fortunately, it is a short book and we will be finished soon.


  • The main character, Miata, leaves a skirt that has been passed down from her mother on a bus Miata needs to get the skirt back because she wants to wear it while performing with her dance group I would use this book to show children that a family can be a representation of two different cultures because of the Mexican American family in this story.


  • A short, and quick story to read Miata left her beloved folklorico skirt on the bus and comes up with a quick scheme to break into the bus yard to get it back The story is a bit dated, as this scenario is not very believable in the present The characters were a little underdeveloped for my liking, but the story line was easy enough to follow for middle grade 3rd 5th readers.


  • i didn t really like this book i think this book was to short and it was real boring when my teacher read this book another day after reading it two days earlier i couldn t follow what was going on i dont recommend people to read this book i would give it a 2 out of 5.


  • Cute Not amazing, but cute It d be good for a lower level reader, since it s not actually baby ish, just an easy read It isn t long, either, which would appeal to someone who struggles with reading.3 5 on here, 6 10 for myself.


  • This book was really entertaining I ve been reading children stories here and there to get rid of my reading slump, and this one definitely helped It was incredibly short, but filled with many exciting twists and turns which is amazing for a book that is not very long.


  • Have you ever lost something really important, and you don t know what to do That is what 10 year old Miata is experiencing when she loses her mother s dancing skirt, just two days before she s suppposed to wear it herself


  • This is a cute story of a girl who leaves her festival skirt on the bus and has to retrieve it before her mother finds out It is not a complex story and it s really short about 70ish pages, I think It is a good story for younger readers.


  • This book was so boring i was keep on falling asleep This book was the wackes book i every read in my entire life I m sorry for my brain,my eye,and myself for reading this boring and wackes book ever.



  • this book is about a girl that lost her skirt and sneakes in a parking lot where they have alots of school buses and trys to get her skirt back without getting cault
