Tell Me a Cuento / Cuéntame un Story
About the Book
"Tell Me a Cuento is just plain charming. Billed as a bilingual early reader, it also makes a great read-aloud-and-look-at-the pictures book for parents and children."—New Mexico Magazine
Contains four of Joe's most popular stories:
Do you know what a Terrible Tragadabas is? Or why the bossy rooster José can’t go to the wedding of his Uncle Perico? Or who gets to marry the butterfly, La Mariposa—the pig, the dog, the cat or the mouse? Or how come the elves gave the poor woman a pot of gold? Well, good news! Nationally known storyteller Joe Hayes teams up with illustrator Geronimo Garcia to answer all these questions with four of his most popular tales told in English and Spanish. Also available in single-book form while supplies last, these four stories have now been anthologized for the first time.
