Board Book How to Charm a Llama yTo make meaningfuluniversal connections to the reader s own life despite how much he or she may think there is in common with the new culture With that said Any Small Goodness is not only great multicultural literature but a vastly underrated example of all that this type of literature can offer While providing incredible insight into what it means to be Mexican American in Los Angeles including the conflicts of fitting into a new culture without losing the sense of whomou are and the close bonds that define a loving family including their customs and shared Spanish language ASG especially stood out to me because of the power of its themes as represented in the perceptive adolescent protagonist Arturo Despite growing up in poverty Arturo seems to be mature beyond his Never Touch the Dinosaurs years recognizing not only the beauty of his family whose actions are defined by their love for each other but the sacrifices of a rich basketball coach wealthy librarian and talented piano teacher all of whom choose to volunteer their time with the disadvantaged rather than resting on their comforts Hoping that he can grow up and do something for love p 52 Arturo is faced with daily conflicts in the poor crime ridden barrio that make him uestion why the poor seek better but always end up with worse p 54 After a gang shoots up his home while his family is eating dinner in the kitchen Arturo realizes that despite the good no one s real safe p 103 at least in the barrio Left with a decision to remain good or become a part of the bad what Arturo ends up choosing will surpriseou at least how author Tony Johnston creatively paints the novel s final developments Much than multicultural literature ASG serves as Johnston s social commentary on the many problems that take place in the barrio most notably including how its people are misrepresented as falling into a certain stereotype Noting how people in the barrio are victims p 99 Johnston through the amazing Arturo shows how there are truly good people out there in the barrio p 125 despite the incredible challenges that are faced on a daily basis It s about time that people recognize not only this point but ASG as a novel worth reading inside or outside the classroom whether a kid or an adult as it is much than an example of small goodness but a far powerful read than I certainly expected when I read this story it makes me feel sad for the boySo the boy was mad when he moved to new school I felt like I m part of the storyBecause that happened to me tooon the first day of the school he don t have friends also it was 2 students making fun of him so I m sure nobody like that So then there s a 3 students tried to talk to him and Invite him to the launch everydayAlso he joined the basketball team with his new friends they helped himAnd after 2 months he made a new basketball program affects all the students for all the grades everybody liked it actually it was fun and everybody was happy Character driven slower pace lack of plot to compel reader forward Conveys a positive messageEach chapter offers an slower pace lack of plot to compel

in Los Angeles it is written in a way that each chapter can be its own separate short story vignette of life in LA The first chapter talks about the group of kids standing up to the gringo teacher and not letting their names become Anglicized but rather stay Spanish Another chapter is a funny not letting their names become Anglicized but rather stay Spanish Another chapter is a funny of Arturo s

interesting Throughout this book review I m going to tell ou guys each of the categories that happen this book review I m going to tell ou guys each of the categories that happen the novel that are happy sad and interesting One of the good things that happened in the novel is that there were that Arturo was a very trouble kid in school Somethings that he would do in the classroom would be that one time they did this project and it really didn t turn out good Also Arturo lived in a barrio because he belonged to a poor family that could t afford a lot of things Some hobbies that Arturo had was that he loved basketball because it was his favorite sport and he would always play basketball Arturo was a very troubled kid and he would be part of a gang He would always want to be the first one on everything that he did Also some of his friends in the gang would like to bully him One time he was very tired that people would bully him and he just wanted to get revenge So I do recommend this book because it s a very interesting book to read and a lot of things happen throughout the novel. A place where random acts of generosity and goodwill improve the lives of the community Any Small Goodness is a novel filled with hope love and warmt. ,


Nderful positive way Arturo uses Spanish And English To Communicate With English to communicate with friends and family In the first chapter American Names we learn that Arturo is a name that has been passed down for many generations But when Arturo goes to school in the US his teacher Americanizes his name to Arthur When he realizes the importance of being Arturo he gathers his friends and they decide to take back their names with prideThroughout the book Johnston describes the delicious sounding Mexican food that his Abuelita and Mami prepare Mouth watering chiles rellenos tacos de chilorio and Mexican dulces sugary candies that can riddle our teeth with holes on sight p56It was such a pleasure to read an uplifting novel about life in the barrio I loved the positive #MESSAGES THAT

serious than ever it s all good as long as Göttliches Vermächtnis König der Welten 1 your withour family but there are still some problems in places like where Arturo is And there are a lot of new

Award Nominee 2006 Uses While providing a multicultural perspective on Mexican American life in the Los Angeles barrio ASG is much than that providing urban students of all colors creeds and races with incredible opportunities to explore themes relevant to their lives including the trappings of poverty gangs etc This book would especially be worthwhile for middle school students in literature circlesbook clubs in which such themes could be discussed Arturo also provides some incredible uotes about the power of a loving family the corrosiveness of gangs and the influence of money that would be great for students to explore in detail and make text to self connections via journal writing My Review What separates great from merely good multicultural literature is the ability not only to reveal something new about a culture that the reader may not be familiar with but. D death But there's another LA one where warmth and humor and humanity pervade Where a tacueria sign declares One cause one people one taco This LA is. Any Small Goodness A Novel of the Barrio by Tony Johnston is the story of Arturo Rodriuez and his family recent immigrants to Los Angeles from Mexico Arturo describes what life is like for his Latino family and the issues they face in a gang infested and very troubled area Throughout the story Arturo goes back and forth between speaking in English and speaking in Spanish In the back of the book there is a small Spanish glossary to help the reader Arturo describes the people he meets the interactions he has and the day to day events that affect his life The reader gets a strong sense of the culture and heritage that unite Arturo s family and makes them strong This book is very appropriate for a 4th 6th grade audience There is mention of gang activity and the Rodriguez family fall victim to a drive by shooting but there are no casualties This book gives the reader a brief window into the Latino culture and life in Los Angeles I found the need to flip back and forth to the glossary very annoying I would have preferred to see the translation at the bottom of the page I am not sure how many non Spanish speaking children would take the time to flip back and forth although a lot of the meaning could be picked up in context Still I did feel that having parts of the story in Spanish did add to the experience As a future librarian I was especially drawn into the chapter about the school librarian that is dropped off a distance from the school so no one knows her true story I wished there had been to that story Overall I enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to

because ou get a sense of the way he communicates with different people around him his friends and his family My favorite part of this book is that not only does the reader get to know Arturo but the reader also gets to know his family which are the closest people to him his Abuelita the family cat Huitlacoche Mami Papi his brother older brother Luis and his little sister Rosa The author does a great job of providing the reader with details that make each of these character distinct Luis is the musical family member and Rosa is the little princess dressed in pink frilly outfits The

him and great morals Arturo carries his father s words with him In life there is bueno and there is malo If ou do not find enough of the good ou must create it I love how Arturo remembers these words and allows them to guide himself away from revenge after his house is shot up during a drive by shooting Instead of creating violence and negativity in his neighborhood Arturo and his friends create their own gang to create good and spread positivity This book shows very powerful messages to its readers that everyone can make a difference in the world around them and that responding to negative things and a positive way is creates good for others Another aspect of love of this book is its focus on family While the family lives in a city filled with gangs poverty and violence this family shines positivity and highlights the goodness in people You also witness the same goodness in several other characters in the story Ms Cloud the librarian who is rich and donates many new books to their library Coach Tree who a famous former NBA star that coaches Arturo s school basketball team for only a dollar Mr Leo Love who rescues Arturo s family cat despite his fears and allergies Life in
