Take mother goose, and switch a FEW words - what fun!! ( )
  melodyreads | Jan 6, 2017 |
Susan Middleton Elya is one of my "go-to" authors for bilingual children's books. La Madre Goose is a selection of classic English nursery rhymes re-worked for a bilingual audience. Some of them are even more endearing in their new format, like "Old Madre Rosario."

"Old Madre Rosario went to el armario
to get her poor dog un hueso.
But when she got there, el armario was bare,
so she gave her poor dog un beso."

There - isn't that so much better than the hungry dog in Old Mother Hubbard?

The illustrations by Juana Martinez-Neal are joyful paintings in cheery colors, and according to the dust jacket, several picture her children. Lovely!
