HASH(0x8f7e1240) out of 5 stars Well written Spanish book 10 Mar. 2014
By Maider Marin Quintero - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For the ones that have read the English book know the story. This is a story for children around 8-10 years old. Mine is 7 and enjoyed. Be advise that the story have violence from parents/teachers to children. I found a good story to talk about that with my son. The characters are well written and the story is really engaging.
I am native Spanish speaker and my son have been exposed to Spanish since he was born and now he is bilingual. This story is for advanced Spanish speakers, I have to explain some vocabulary to him, but he could guess the meaning of the words from the context. I am always nervous about buying translations but this book translation is very good!

Para los q han leído el libro en ingles conocen la historia. Es para niños entre 8-10 años. Mi hijo tiene 7 y lo entendió bien y la disfruto. La historia muestra violencia de parte de padres/profesores hacia niños así q este reparado(a) a hablar de eso con sus niños. Los personajes de la historia son sólidos y la historia te mantiene entretenido, a mi hijo le costaba trabajo parar.
Yo hablo español nativamente y mi hijo ha sido expuesto a español desde bebe. Este libro está escrito en español avanzado. Tuve q explicar un poco del vocabulario a mi hijo pero el podía adivinar el significado de la mayoría de las palabras desconocidas por contexto. Es una buena traducción, lo recomiendo.

A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Matilda was good,very good because it had a very good story. The story is about a girl named Matilda who is a very good reader and goes to school. Mrs. Trunchball is the head mistress at her school. She is very mean to all the children. The end is really surprising. I can't tell you the ending or I would give it away.
Roald Dahl has written other books like The Enormous Crocodile, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, George's Marvelous Medicine, The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me, The Twits, The BFG, and the Magic Finger. I have read all of these books by Roald Dahl. My favorite is The Enormous Crocodile. Matilda is my second favorite.

HASH(0x8f7e1978) out of 5 stars Matilda--The Born Genious 25 Feb. 2000
By Chelsea - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book Matilda, by Ronald Dahl, was an outstanding book that really knows how to get a readers attention. The author is writing from Matilda's point of view. Which focuses the readers attention on Matilda's family problems. The book shows how Matilda Woodworm, the born genious, finds out she has to learn how to survive on her own. The abnormal behavior in her family made it hard for Matilda to experience a normal childhood. The book shows her interaction with her abnormal brother, fanatic mother and cheapskate father, making it very entertaining and amusing. The comedy of this novel helps people of all ages realize that no matter what, every family has its problems. It all depends on the way you react to them and the way you deal with them. Matilda realizes by taking things into her own hands, it helps her deal with her problems better. I'd highly recommend this book to readers of all ages, because it's written by a great author, and can provide some reading enjoyment.

HASH(0x8f7e1a2c) out of 5 stars A Teachable Moment! 22 Feb. 2008
By Suzanne F. Miville - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a teacher in a multi-lingual school, a copy of a book in ANY language other than English is like gold! Matilda is a great book for any child.
Most children today are avid movie goers. A book that "goes with" a movie has gotten my students reading, reading, reading! After viewing the video AND reading the book makes for a great compare and contrast lesson...putting the book in Spanish allows for me to expand that experience and the growth of my Spanish speaking learners!
I highly recommend this book to teachers working with non-English speaking students.

HASH(0x8f7e16e4) out of 5 stars This is my #1 favorite book. 8 Jun. 2001
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Matilda is a book about a girl named Matilda who is as smart as a 6th grader, but is in kindergarten. This book is very magical and, at times, funny, like when she uses a power she has to scare Ms.Trunchbull, the schools horrible headmaster. It is a very good book and I liked it a lot. Some other books the author wrote are good, but I think this one is the best. I would recommend this book to everybody. Put this one on your list!
