Loosely based on the little red hen story, this tale features hard-working Iguana, who is preparing for a fiesta—with no help from her lazy friends, Turtle, Snake, and Rabbit. Brian and Rosi Amador's duet of pleasing voices introduces young listeners to some Spanish words. Rosi narrates and performs the part of Iguana, and Brian becomes the slow-voiced Turtle, perky Rabbit, and the regretful Snake. (Honest, he'd help more if he just had some arms!) Delicate guitar music plays softly in the background, creating the mood of the fiesta or the sound of a lullaby when tired Iguana finally rests. This pleasing production includes a glossary of the days of the week (she reads, he repeats, she defines), which allows youngsters to absorb a little Spanish.
