Children's LiteratureThis children's bilingual fable in English and Spanish about Little Crow and Father Crow transpires while a boy tries to catch the crows that swoop down and steal the chicken feed from the yard. Little Crow's father's rebuttal to this impossibility is narrated through a story he tells. Why is it that farmers do not like the crows when all they want to do is sing their best songs for them? It was the crows after all that taught the farmers how to plant the corn in the fields. Humans cannot do the same things that many animals in the kingdom can do such as fly like crows, run fast like deer, or possess the big claws and teeth and speed of jaguars. In this well-woven story other crows learn about the dangers that humans present. The illustrations are exquisite and enhance the fantastic bilingual text. 2005, Pinata Books, Ages 3 to 7.
