Esperanza RisingWritten by Pam Munoz Ryan

The main idea is that Esperanza has to leave her
home in Mexico and must go to California and ends
up enjoying her self and wanting to stay.
  • Esperanzas house gets set on fire by her two
    Uncles.
  • Her grandma ends up having to stay because she
    couldnt walk.
  • When she leaves she has to ride on a train and
    has to sit with the poor people.
  • When they get to California Alfonsos family
    picks them up to go to the camp.
  • Esperanzas job is to watch the babies and
    sweeping the platform.
  • At the end Miguel brings Abuelita to California
    making Esperanza very happy.

Theme
  • Esperanza learned not to say I dont like where
    we are until you try and see if you like it.
  • She also learned that anything is possible if you
    try hard enough to get what you want.

The plot of the story was to have a story that
readers would enjoy reading.
  • Esperanzas dad tells her that if you lay your
    hand on the ground youll hear earths heartbeat.
  • In the story her grandma is trying to teach her
    how to knit and some people come and tell her
    something's happened to her dad.
  • After that then her uncle Tio Luis comes and
    asked her mama to marry him.
  • Espranza and her mama leave with Miguel,Alfonso
    and Hortensia.
  • When they get to California they must live in a
    small home instead of in a big home.

5
Setting
  • The setting is set in Mexico at a vineyard in the
    first part of the story. After a while it is set
    in California in a Mexican camp. When they lived
    in Mexico there were grapes all over the place
    and other fruits. Its also set in a small home.
    Its also set in the sheds where they worked.

Character Description
  • Esperanza was a girl with long black hair and
    wore a silk dress with summer boots. Her traits
    are that she's rich, brave, nice, and very smart.
    She relates to the story because she fits the way
    the character needs to be.
  • Mama is Esperanzas mom she had long black hair
    and always wore it in braids and wore dresses.
    Her traits were shes nice, rich, and a mom. Mama
    relates to the story because she is nice and
    she's even nice to people she doesnt know.

    sister she was younger then Esperanza she was
    always happy, and had a great smile. Her

    need..

5 words I didnt know.
  • I didnt know what atrocious meant. The sentence
    it is in is She woke to Lupes whimpering and an
    atrocious smell. Based on the sentence it means a
    horrible smell. It means extremely wicked, brutal
    or cruel.
  • Another word that I didnt know was chorizo. The
    sentence its in is and other specialties like
    chorizo and pigs feet. Based on the sentence it
    means a king of meat. The real definition is a
    pork sausage highly seasoned especially with
    chili powder and garlic.
  • I didnt know what perspired meant. The sentence
    its in is Her skin perspired and she felt cold
    and nauseous. Based on the sentence it means
    she's scared or cold. The real definition is to
    emit matter through the skin.
  • I didnt know what chinaberry was. The sentence
    is Straight ahead across a dirt road were
    chinaberry trees and a mulberry tree that
    provided shade over a table. It means based on
    the sentence a tree with berries. The real
    definition is a small Asian tree of the mahogany
    family naturalized in the northern United States
    where it is widely planted for shade or ornament.
  • I didnt know what ay meant. It was in the
    sentence Ay my neck hurts said mama as she
    massaged the back of her head with her hand. It
    means to express sorrow or regret.

The Dust Bowl.
  • Sometimes the dust can be so thick it hides the
    sun.
  • The dust bowl can be so bad that even if your
    wearing goggles the dust will get into your eyes
    still.
  • If the dust from the dust bowl gets into your
    system you can get very sick or maybe even worse
    than that.
  • The dust bowl destroyed five million acres of
    wheat and people on the rode had to try and make
    it home.
  • Sometimes the dust bowl got so bad that people
    abandoned their land.

9
Similes, Metaphors and Alliteration.
  • Esperanza is like a dog.
  • Esperanza is like a monkey.
  • Esperanza is a fish.
  • Esperanza is a turtle.
  • Esperanza cracked an egg into the east side of
    the bowl then put in a drip of eggnog.
  • Esperanza went east to eat at her table .

10
Compare and Contrast.
11
How I think the author feels.
  • I think the author feels that Esperanza has a
    good life until she has to move to a different
    place. I also think that she thinks that she is
    very lucky that shes rich and has a vineyard.
    Based on the way the book was written she
    probably meant to write it this way So Esperanza
    would have a great life then it would change to
    ok then back to good. She also probably feels sad
    when her mom goes to the hospital because shes
    sick.
