Listen in as Iguana's friends--Conejo (Rabbit), Tortuga (Tortoise), and Culebra (Snake)--all try to help Iguana recover from a stubbed toe. "Doctor" Culebra's remedy involves enthusiastic counting from one to ten and much clanging of kitchen utensils. Will Iguana soon be well enough to make her delicious cactus butter dulces (sweets)? With great exaggeration, switches between a high and low voice, and elongated phrasing, Brian and Rosi Amador make the most of the humor in this tale. The deliberate pacing enables young listeners time to process the Spanish names and numbers and pore over the droll illustrations. And, of course, the clattering of pots and pans provides the perfect background. A pronunciation guide and a recipe for cactus butter sweets complete this read-along.
