This is a tortilla version of the little red hen's story of bread making from wheat but the burro make tortillas from corn. The story follows the same pattern: none of the characters but the burro is interested in helping when there is work to be done, but they are interested in eating the product of that work. While we usually do not recommend books that anthropomorphize animals, in this instance the accuracy of the process warrants that we include this book. The book concludes with classroom appropriate student activities and instructions fro making tortillas.
