Isabella is a sweet old woman who moves to a shack along the sea when she feels that she is no longer needed in her village. Her life changes, however, when she comes to care for a lost sea spirit and learns that she is needed after all. The Old Woman and the Sea Spirit, a delightful story based on a Chilean legend, is supported by beautiful illustrations that spark the imagination. The book can also be used to teach students how to analyze characters and to identify and use past-tense verbs.
