Chachalaca Chiquita

(4) K-3 Illustrated by David Harrington. This picture book puts a southwestern spin on the classic Chicken Little tale. "¡Aye Chihuahua! What was that?" exclaims Chacalaca Chiquita when a pebble falls on her head. Both the text and the colorful art are amusing, if a little slick, and will entertain readers right through to the final joke. Appended is a glossary of Spanish words used in the text.
