Marta! Big & Small by Jen Arena

 

Marta! Big & Small by Jen Area is a bilingual tale of jungle exploration! 

As Marta explores the jungle around her she meets a fun and varied cast of animal characters and explores all the ways she compares to the animals. 

Marta discovers (in Spanish and English) that she can be both quiet like a rabbit (el conejo) and loud like a lion (el león) . When Marta comes across a fearsome snake (la culebra) however, she must use her cleverness (ingeniosidad) to outsmart it!
