Maria Had A Little Llama (Maria Tenia Una Llamita)

Maria Had A Little Lamb Book Cover “Mary Had A Little Lamb,” the classic rhyme, has been transformed in this bilingual version which takes place in rural Peru.  Each straightforward English verse is accompanied with the Spanish translation directly below, making this a perfect read-aloud.  Readers are transported to Peru as they read the rhythmically flowing text and view warm gouache and ink illustrations. A wordless picture spread allows students to become authors, making up their own stories. Distinctive Peruvian features such as Andean dress, culture, and landscape are depicted. cc
