Señor Pancho Had a Rancho

Señor Pancho Had a Rancho
René Colato Laínez
Illustrated by Elwood Smith

This is a very nice bilingual English-Spanish version of Old MacDonald Had a Farm, with the English verse followed by the Spanish on the adjoining page. What I really love about this book is that it will teach readers how many people who speak Spanish hear and describe the noises the farm animals in the song make. The ending is also really nice, with the farm animals from Old MacDonald’s farm and Señor Pancho’s rancho coming together to dance, para bailar!
