I am constantly looking for Spanish or Bilingual children’s book for my little man so I was delighted to find Sopa de Hortalizas (Coleccion Dos Lenguas) (Spanish Edition) (affiliate link) by Puerto Rican author Angeles Molina Iturrondo.
Animal books are my son’s favorite, and I love that this book is a two in one. Presented in both English and Spanish with discussion questions for parents.
This book is a favorite in our home. It’s the story of Mrs. Rabbit’s trip to the orchard to get some carrots to make some soup. On her way to the orchard she comes across her forest friends who give her advice on what other vegetables to add. In the end, she makes a yummy vegetable soup to feed her bunnies, and forest friends.
For this year’s reading fair project my son actually picked this book. He was so excited, and knows the story by heart.
When looking for activity ideas for this book I found one geared towards kindergarten age students. I’m sure it can be adapted for 1st graders, too.
