A skillful mix of English and Spanish adds a special flair to this lively, rhythmic picture book. It’s non-stop fun when eight animal friends-ocho animales-head out to the market to find their supper. There’s queso for the mouse, leche for the cat, and much more. And when all of the animals are fed, it’s off to the baile to dance the night away!
