I don't really like reading a whole book of his. Читать весь отзыв. Пользовательский отзыв - csweder - LibraryThing. This is my second Saldana book. I don't really like reading a whole book of his.

René Saldaña's The Jumping Tree tells the story of Rey Castañeda, a boy growing up in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, where I am from. This is one genuine book. The things Rey and his friends do in this book are the same kinds of things I did with my cousins and friends growing up.

These lively stories follow Rey Castaneda from sixth through eighth grade in Nuevo Penitas, Texas. In Nuevo Penitas, he enjoys fooling around with his pals in the barrio; at school, he's one of the "A list" kids.

These lively stories follow Rey Castaneda from sixth through eighth grade in Nuevo Penitas, Texas. One side of Rey's family lives nearby in Mexico, the other half in Texas, and Rey fits in on both sides of the border. In Nuevo Penitas, he enjoys fooling around with his pals in the barrio; at school, he's one of the "A list" kids.As Rey begins to cross the border from childhood into manhood, he turns from jokes and games to sense the meaning of work, love, poverty, and grief, and what it means to be a proud Chicano-moments that sometimes propel him to show feelings un hombre should never express. It's a new territory where Rey longs to follow the example his hardworking, loving father has set for him.

This was a fun read. I read this with my granddaughter, I did not want this to end. I would love more books like this.

This book was extremly goopd for me because it gives a message about how we should look on the things you have and not be trying to show off to other people that you can drink. Also, that you should not be fightin in front of the children, you should only back away from the problem. For example when your brother offerse you to drink, if you don't dring anymore (which is good) you should just say no and walk away with your family back home even if it was yoor brother. Another thing that ilearned from this book is that

René Saldaña's The Jumping Tree tells the story of Rey Castañeda, a boy growing up in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas, where I am from. This is one genuine book. The things Rey and his friends do in this book are the same kinds of things I did with my cousins and friends growing up. With a style that actually made me laugh out loud, René writes about playing King of the Mountain, throwing pretend grenades at each other and jumping down from a tree to try and catch a branch. He does a superb job of showing readers that most Mexican kids' games are based on proving your friend is a bigger "chicken" than you are. He also has a great ear for South Texas slang. You read what these characters say to each other and you are transported. If you're from the Valley you're hearing your friends or cousins talking to you all over again. If you're not, you're given a rare opportunity to visit a wonderful place that is full of hilarious people with great stories to tell. I plan to use this one in the classroom as an engaging read-aloud. I look forward to reading more from this promising young author. You got it, René! Dale gas!

I absolutely loved the book! I felt, even though Rey and I are really different, the author shapes the character so that anybody can relate to him. I enjoyed reading as he struggled to field right and wrong, which everyone does from time to time. And especially the personal things, like his Tio Angel dying, I can totally relate what Rey went through. His defined writing makes Rey almost real. I have had to set the book down and remember that Rey is a character in a story. It is that good.

i am a 6th grade student from Burlington, Washington. I am writing a book review for the jumping tree

The Jumping Tree is a book about a boy named Rey. He is a Mexican. When he was little, he had an earthquake in his home. His house got ruined and now half of his famaly moved to south texas to nuevo penitas and the other half to mexico about fifty miles away.

His family finds a home and these other bigger kids there start to bully him. But a kid named Chuy helps him. Now he must face the trubles of becoming a man. He has to decide to smoke or not to and is running from the cops and even goes to a funeral. This is an action packed book that I recommend to kids 9 years of age to 14 years of age .

Rene Saldana's young adult novel, The Jumping Tree, is perfectly crafted to broaden your view of the youth of today. I have read it twice now and am still inspired by his stories of Chicano youth and the common (and often hilarious) misadventures that we all experience as we grow into young men & women. I especially love the frequent use (almost every page)of the spanish language in dialogue and descriptions...it's a bonus pleasure to learn another language while reading of Rey's growing pains! In short, it's like Harry Potter...but in Texas..and the magic is the only real kind: Human love!
Saldana does a wonderful job chronicling the life of a Chicano boy growing up in a Texas border town through lively and entertaining episodes that richly exhibit the world inhabited by Rey Casteneda and his family. Rey is a good boy with a supportive family who help him to overcome the crises and problems that arise when trying to straddle two cultures that are often at odds with each other. What Saldana does best in this book is portray Rey's sense of joy and pride with himself, his family, and and especially with his father.
