Early Pick: La Gallina Grande/Big Fat Hen

La Gallina Grande
Big Fat Hen
by Keith Baker
Translated by Carlos E. Calvo
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
30 pages
ISBN: 9780544173989

Pre-K, Kinder board book

Charming and endearing, La Gallina Grande/Big Fat Hen will delight young readers. The colorful cover depicts a mother hen on her nest awaiting the arrival  of her hatchlings. Ten yellow chicks hatch and fill the pages of the book while readers learn to count to ten in both English and Spanish. The Big Fat Hen and her friends--mother hens--watch as their babies hatch and play together.

The book was copyrighted in 1994 in English but this board book with the Spanish translation is available April 15, 2014.

Highly recommended for beginning readers and children learning Spanish or English.
