Little Chickies is a bilingual picture book! Readers can enjoy the text in English or Spanish. The text is based on a traditional Spanish nursery rhyme, and has even been translated into song. I would love to include this book in my classroom for multiple reasons. I think it is very important to provide our ELL students with texts that are in their native language. This text is so very beneficial, because they can compare both versions of the book at the same time. I would love to incorporate this book as a cultural experience for children. I think exposing our young learners early on can broaden their understanding of others and help foster an inclusive classroom. I would allow my students to compare this text with other traditional nursery rhymes and songs.
