Marta is una niña pequeña. She visits the jungle, where she encounters many animals.
To a horse, Marta is lenta. Slow, very slow. To a turtle, Marta is rápida. Fast, very fast.”She also encounters a snake, who thinks Marta looks very sabrosa (tasty!).
The use of repetition, and movement between English and Spanish will be really helpful to students, who are learning a new language. It's also a great book for thinking about adjectives and opposites. And it's really, really fun besides!
The illustrations in this book are simple and way fun, but also tell a great story; the book reminds me, a little, of ROSIE'S WALK, which I have always loved reading to kids.
Definitely one to own, put in your classroom or school library, buy for gifts, etc!
