Curriculum Connections and Picture Book Pairs
Each poem in our book appears in English and Spanish—and is accompanied by a “Take 5!” mini-lesson for librarians, teachers, and parents to use. The “Take 5!” gives step-by-step instructions on how to share a poem and offers picture book pairings and curriculum connections for every poem. Celebrate holidays—and learn at the same time!
