“The itsy arañita
climbed up the water spout.
Down came la lluvia
and washed la araña out.”
Here's a unique collection of nursery rhymes with a multicultural twist. Author Susan Middleton Elya's clever integration of Spanish vocabulary meets the whimsically nostalgic illustrations of Peruvian artist Juana Martinez-Neal in La Madre Goose: Nursery Rhymes for Los Niños. From "Baa, Baa, Black Oveja" and "The Itsy Arañita" to "Twinkle, Twinkle, Small Estrella" and "Three Little Gatitos," readers will recognize the classic tales and characters and sharpen their Spanish language skills.
This is a must for Spanish teachers and learners of all ages to cozy up with!
