Cristina y la rana {Giveaway}

Happy Valentine's Day (a few hours early)!! Does your family celebrate this holiday? My children have already enjoyed their Valentine's party with all of their homeschooled friends, but tomorrow we will splurging with heart-shaped pancakes and some of the crafts I have in my Pinterest board for this holiday.

And to express my gratitude for all of you dear readers, I'm delighted to introduce you to another giveaway.

This one bring you this sweet story of Cristina y la rana. It is about young, lonely Crisitina, who one day finds una rana in her garden. She gives it a little kiss, hoping for it to turn into a playmate. But when she lets it go, the little frog disappears. And to her surprise, it is not a little girl who suddenly appears, but a baby...

Based on the popular folktale, The Frog Prince, this book is a sweet, simple story perfect for bedtime reading. It is written completely in Spanish.
