Reading Group Guide


Today’s the day, and it’s the morning. You get treated like a king. Cause this morning it’s your birthday. Your praises we’re going to sing. Come on, its time to get up now. Come see how the day turns bright. All the sparrows sing about you the moon has gone nighty – night.


Estas son las mañanitas, que cantaba el Rey David. Hoy por ser tu cumpleaños, te las cantamos a ti. Despierta, mi bien, despierta, mira que ya amaneció. Ya los pajarillos cantan, la luna ya se metió.
