It doesn't matter if it's science fiction, fantasy, romance, or non-fiction - if the book has door in the name, it belongs on this list. The Old Man and His Door Gary Soto. 30.

An old man who's great at gardening but lousy at listening to his wife! In the universal tradition of the wise-fool story. First, it will help you learn Spanish words. In addition, it is good for Mexican families. Furthermore, it will make you laugh at all its humorous parts. Reading this book will help you learn Spanish words like puerta, which means door, puerco, which means pig, and viejo, which means old man. You can also learn la vieja, which means the old woman. Another reason to read this book is that it will remind you of Mexico.

But instead the preoccupied fellow removes la puerta from its hinges, and leaves home with a door on his back. It is a propitious mistake, since the well-intentioned man uses this item to perform several important services, among them entertaining a bawling baby and saving a drowning boy. And, as a result of his distractions, he accumulates a range of edibles that are eagerly consumed at his neighbors' feast.

Gary Anthony Soto (born April 12, 1952) is an American poet, novelist, and memoirist. Soto was born to Mexican-American parents Manuel (1910–1957) and Angie Soto (1924-). In his youth, he worked in the fields of the San Joaquin Valley. Soto's father died in 1957, when he was five years old. As his family had to struggle to find work, he had little time or encouragement in his studies, hence, he was not a good student.

This is my go-to book for gifting. I love the story and the illustrations equally - they go very well together and leave you feeling warm and fuzzy throughout the story. This book will be enjoyable for young audience/readers, but as a speech language pathologist, I find this book very useful with my language-delayed 1st - 3rd grade students, since if offers multiple concepts to teach: sequencing, cause-effect ("Why did the Old Man play with the little girl?"), character traits (forgetful, clever, helpful) & emotions (thankful, surprised, worried), or just talking about how cleverly the old man uses the door in unconventional ways :) Also, I enjoy watching Spanish-speaking students' faces light up every time they come across Spanish words in the story. A fun read!

This book is apparently based on a Spanish song about how "el puerco" (the pig) and "la puerta" (the door) sound alike when you're old and deaf.

In the way of fool stories, the old man's silly mistake (bringing a door to a party when a little thought would've told him that's absurd and he should bring a pig!) turns out to everybody's benefit as he repeatedly stops to use his door to help people. It's astonishing how useful a door can be!

And so when he shows up late, without the pig but WITH the door and several useful things balanced nicely on it, his wife has no choice but to forgive him.

This is a good, funny story for kidlets.

A review from a third grade ESL student:

The Old Man and His Door is a fabulous book! It is a good book to read at school. First, it will help you learn Spanish words. In addition, it is good for Mexican families. Furthermore, it will make you laugh at all its humorous parts.

Reading this book will help you learn Spanish words like puerta, which means door, puerco, which means pig, and viejo, which means old man. You can also learn la vieja, which means the old woman.

Another reason to read this book is that it will remind you of Mexico. The Spanish words that they say remind me of Mexico. The houses look like houses in Mexico, too!

Last but not least, this is a great book because it is simply hilarious! In the story the old man takes a door instead of the pig like his wife asks. Another funny thing is that the dog in the story was like a sheep because it is covered with bubbles. In addition the dog from the story ran away from the bath, which made me laugh.

The Old Man and His Door is a fabulous book because you get to learn Spanish words. It will make you laugh and it is good for Mexican families. You should buy it now!

I love using this book with K-2nd graders...they really laugh at the grandfather's hilarious mistakes. Many children can identify with having a grandfather who is losing his hearing, as well. The Spanish is well-woven into the text, in a way that is friendly both to Spanish-speakers and non-Spanish speakers alike. Also, the illustrations match the text particularly well.

Totally delightful and original story when an old man mishears puerco as puerto and carries a door to a barbecue. His adventures with the door become a charming story about the repercussions of kindness. Beautiful colorful illustrations.. Adults will enjoy reading this to their kids. Highly recommended!

This is cute little book that was recommended at an ELL workshop. It's cute.
I really enjoyed the book and gave it to my grandparents because that is exactly how they are.(and Mexican too!) A great fun story that teaches about love kindness and patience.
