EL LORITO PELON/ THE FEATHERLESS PARROT

by | Read by Gabriella Cavallero

Spanish Audio Ages 4-6 • 25 mins. • Unabridged • © 2010

El protagonista de este cuento encantador para niños es un lorito. Ha llegado desde Puerto Rico a la ciudad invernal y gris de Chicago para vivir con una pareja simpática en un edificio alto. Añorar la compañía de otros loros y también los árboles altos y el sol fuerte de su madre patria hace que este pequeño héroe se rebela. Una por una, empieza a arrancarse las plumas. Gabriella Cavallero narra este audiolibro de manera sencilla y eficaz y con una habilidad de lectura tan buena que hace que las palabras suenan espontáneas en lugar de leídas. Sra. Cavallero tiene una voz de tono amablemente claro que comunica con facilidad la nostalgia del pobre lorito. Los efectos de sonido que acompañan a la lectura son entretenidos y hacen complemento a la totalidad de la experiencia de escuchar esta historia agradable. J.A.G.

[ENGLISH TRANSLATION]--The protagonist of this lovely children’s story is little parrot who has been shipped from Puerto Rico to live with a kind old couple in a high-rise building in the wintry and gray city of Chicago. Loneliness for other parrots and a desire to be back among the tall trees and sunshine of his homeland lead this little hero to rebel in the only way he knows how. One by one, he begins to pull out his feathers. Gabriella Cavallero narrates cleanly and effectively with storytelling skills that make her words sound spontaneously recounted, rather than read. Cavallero has a pleasantly clear-toned voice that makes it easy for readers to sympathize with the poor little parrot’s homesickness. The amusing sound effects that accompany the reading add to the overall experience of listening to this pleasant story. J.A.G. trans. L.R.P. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2011]
