Beloved by kids, parents and educators, Canticos is the #1 bilingual preschool brand.
It’s an ongoing challenge for our family to find high-quality books in Spanish, and it is even more difficult to find bilingual editions where Spanish and English are presented as equals. This beautiful children’s book offers a novel solution: its sturdy cardboard accordion-style construction can be read from either side. One side offers the classic words to “Las mañanitas,” and the other presents an English version. The same design can be found in three other Canticos books - Ashley Hope Pérez Latinxs in Kids Lit
