Canticos announces My Little Donkey / Mi Burrito, as part of its original Canticos Classics collection, the precursor to the Emmy-nominated, award-winning bilingual preschool series Canticos.

Based on the popular Venezuelan Christmas song El burrito sabanero (or The Little Donkey from the Savannah), sing and learn about a boy and his donkey's journey to Bethlehem on the night Jesus was born, in both English and Spanish. Complete with beautiful hand-drawn illustrations, this book is a great way to make learning with your little chickie special and unique in not one, but two languages.

Concept: Song, Christmas, Holiday.

• 8" x 7" novelty board book with silver foil stamping on both the cover and interior, and a slip case, for a very deluxe, exclusive, and festive feel.
• The spread format is an accordion fold, so the book can be opened completely, laid flat, or made to stand so children can surround themselves with the story.
• English on one side of the accordion, and Spanish on the other.
• Interactive lift-the-flap.
