Beloved characters from the best-known fairy tales introduce Spanish vocabulary in this whimsical story.

When Miguel and María set out to visit their aunt (their tía), they encounter a host of characters from nursery rhymes and fairy tales-Cinderella, the seven dwarfs, even Humpty Dumpty! At last they reach their aunt's house, where their loving tía and a great quesadilla lunch await them. Sprinkled with simple Spanish vocabulary, this is a fun and accessible way for children to become familiar with a new language. Also includes a glossary and pronunciation guide.
