The Bossy Gallito

This bilingual edition of a classic ‘cumulative’ memory-story told with a Cuban accent. A cocky little rooster sets out to attend the wedding of his uncle, but dirties his beak on the path. He asks in turn for help from the grass, a goat, a stick, a fire, the water and finally the Sun who aids him in reward for his daily morning wake-up crowing. Both the English and the Spanish utilize the kind of rhythmic repetition that helps children master sequence, but what the children will hear is the fun, not the pedagogy.
