ABOUT MARTA! BIG & SMALL
Marta, a curious, science-loving girl, explores the world of opposites and animals in this Spanish bilingual picture book.
Marta is una niña, an ordinary girl...with some extraordinary animal friends!
As Marta explores the jungle, she knows she's bigger than a bug, smaller than an elephant, and faster than a turtle. But then she meets the snake, who thinks Marta is sabrosa--tasty, very tasty! But Marta is ingeniosa, a very clever girl, and she outsmarts the snake with hilarious results.
With simple Spanish and a glossary at the end, this fun read-aloud picture book teaches little ones to identify opposites and animals and learn new words.
