Truly the best known folk story of Hispanic America. It appears at first to be only a frightening story filled with mysterious events, causing children to huddle together and listen spellbound. Yet, itís the simple, universal wisdom at the core of the story that finally works its magic in their heart.

The age-old story of La Llorona is a marvelous teaching tool to encourage students to tell the version of this story that was passed down to them from their parents and grandparents.
