My older daughter is learning Spanish for the first time. My younger two daughters are interested in learning too, but language is not offered in the younger grades What better way to start than with a bilingual book that is catchy and enjoyable for both ages.
The board book design was perfect to show the girls how the rhyme in English and Spanish tell the same story. It is a fun way to keep them engaged and interested in both stories.
By combining the books and the app, it helps children with:
– language & communication skills
– fine motor skills
– sound & music skills
– number & math awareness
– visual awareness
In addition to the book, there is also a great app, LITTLE CHICKIES (LOS POLLITOS) by Canticos to go along with the story and expose young children to music, language and creativitiy. Inspired by the beloved Latino nursery rhyme “Los Pollitos Dicen” (Little Chicks Say), three little chickies peep and sing ‘pío pío pío’ throughout a variety of creative play experiences.
Sing along to the nursery rhyme in 8 different languages, crack the eggs to help the Little Chickies hatch, decorate a whimsical bouquet for Mother Hen and strum along to the notes of this catchy tune. Ideal way to introduce additional languages.

The Canticos books are very popular and have wonderful reviews. As an educator, I find that they are perfect for the preschool age group of students. Through the years, I have seen bilingual books. But, I must say that this book is unique in its approach to sharing both languages.
Canticos collects the most beloved nursery rhymes and songs from all over the Spanish-speaking world. Designed by parents with love and care, we bring to life our Canticos (little songs) through books, apps, sing-a-long videos and more.
