Good Morning, Good Morning
How are you? How are you?
Very well thank you. Very well thank you.
And you? And you?

Los Pollitos Dicen
Los pollitos dicen
"p?o, p?o, p?o"
cuando tienen hambre,
cuando tienen fr?o.

La gallina busca
el ma?z y el trigo,
les da la comida
y les presta abrigo.

Bajo sus dos alas
acurrucaditos
hasta el otro d?a
duermen los pollitos.

Notes
My Spanish-speaking partner and I take turns reading page for page (Spanish then English) for each story. Be aware that hearing each story twice (Spanish/English) can be challenging for younger children.
