Reading Group Guide


Little chickies squeal, pio pio pio. When they are so cold, and when they want a meal. Mama goes and gets them corn from the field, serves them each their food, and warms them head to heel. Chickies sleep so yummy, snuggled up with mommy. And that’s just where they’ll stay until another day.


Los pollitos dicen pío, pío, pío cuando tienen hambre cuando tienen frio. La gallina busca el maiz y el trigo les da la comida y les presta abrigo. Bajo de sus alas, acurrucaditos duermen los pollitos hasta el otro día!
