I can't find a review for these so I'm adding one here.
This set came with a speller called a silabario, a ledger, a quill pen, a glass inkwell. It also included a cuaderno, a leather notebook.
This was an excellent set and so important to the story. The speller is a sheet of laminated paper with old Spanish letters, I think a sort of Spanish version of a hornbook. On the back is the English translation. The quill pen is rather disappointing. It's the same as Felicity's and made from plastic. The inkwell is green glass and very tiny. I'm not sure how much ink Josefina could fit in there. The ledger is a realistic looking smooth calf hide looking bound notebook. It ties closed and inside are sheets of paper written with numbers to show the sheep Josefina's Papá has sold and his other business. The best part of the set is the notebook. It is soft suede (faux?) bound with paper pages and inside are all the poems, proverbs, songs, and sayings that Tía Dolores had learned from Mamá. The Spanish is translated into English in the back.
