What We're Reading

Eres mi Mamá?(Are you my Mother?)

--Eres mi mamá?--preguntó el pajarito a una vaca.
--No puedo ser tu mamá--dijo la vaca--Soy una vaca.

Oso polar, oso polar, qué es ese ruido?(Polar bear, polar bear, what do you hear?)

León, león, qué es ese ruido?
Es un hipopótamo que resopla en mi oído.

Huevos verdes con jamón (Green eggs and ham)

No, no me gustan en ninguna ocasión, los huevos verdes con jamón!

In these three books the translation is excellent and Huevos verdes con jamón even rhymes the whole way through! Some of the childrens books that are translated from english have a lot of grammatical errors in the translation. (I ran them past my linguist father and read reviews on Amazon.) We've been very happy with most of the Dr. Seuss and Eric Carle books.

Brown Bear Brown Bear is Will's favorite.
