Summaries and Reviews
Introduces readers to simple Spanish words as they are boldly incorporated into the English tale about a group of animals getting together to play a game of baseball at the local park. description: Product Description: Eight animales, ready to play,
head for the parque-the park-for the day.

The trouble is, each animal friend wants to play something different. Cat-Gato-brings her bat and a rousing game of baseball-béisbol-seems like the best idea, but it doesn't take long for trouble to strike. When Horse pops out and gets grumpy and the chatter in the infield turns mean, the game goes sour. But then it starts to rain and bad feelings are forgotten as the friends work together to keep their gear and each other dry (except Frog-Rana-of course!).

With easy Spanish vocabulary seamlessly intertwined with English, and vibrant, energetic illustrations, this offers fun for non-Spanish speakers as well as Spanish speakers learning English.
