DiEdwardo, Maryann. The Fourth “R” A Book to Promote the Journey through Hispanic American Literary History to Develop Language Skills. Bloomington, Indiana: Authorhouse, 2008. Review: “Dr. DiEdwardo's book is a ‘must have’ for all educators, especially for those who teach students of other languages. The book is simple, and its components are easy to follow. What I find particularly compelling about this book is the idea to use authors from the students' home country to enhance self-esteem and pride, in addition to creating individual voices. ” Toni Velleca, ESOL Teacher
