Synopsis

Texas Chili? Oh My! by Patricia Vermillion

Texas Chili? Oh My! is a retelling of the beloved fairy tale The Three Little Pigs --Texas style! Meet Bluebonnet, Mockingbird, and Sweet Olive, three little armadillos, as they leave Mamadillo's home and build their own dens out of native Texan materials. But watch out for Trickster Coyote, always looking for armadillos to make into Texas Chili! Aided by adorable and colorful illustrations that depict Texas characters, settings, plants, and natural resources, Patricia Vermillion also gets the Texas vernacular just right! Kids and adults alike will be entertained and educated on Texas symbols in this beautiful book. Texas Chili? Oh My! also includes a glossary and learning objectives to aid elementary teachers in making Texas history a fun, engaging experience for students.
