conejitoGrades K-2

This is the retelling of a folktale about a little rabbit on his way to visit his Tía Monica. On his way, he meets different animals who plan to make a meal of him, but he convinces them that he is too skinny, and that he will be much more filling on his way back, after his aunt has fattened him up. The author includes Spanish words to enhance the story, and the traditional song Tía Monica is repeated throughout the story.
