Cultural Awernes

    wonderful book; easily the best of this group; with lovely illustrations; someone ought to translate it into English; longish for a bedtime story

    by Margaret Wise Brown, illustrated by Clement Hurd translated by Teresa Mlawer Year Published: Easy Reading
    unlike the Big Red Barn translation, this one is awful; but kids love the story; a real chestnut

    Note: This book is available in our Library.

  • Mi Libro de Cuentos Preferido (I Love My Little Storybook)
