Six little ducks that I once knew

Notes
I and my Spanish-speaking partner take turns reading page for page (Spanish then English) each story. Be aware: hearing each story twice (Spanish/English) can be challenging for younger children. Consequently, four or five books may be all that can be read for each story session depending on the average age of your audience.
