Introduce your little ones to the funny ways the game telephone can go wrong in English and Spanish! Pass it on!

A precocious young girl learns how quickly a story can spread and change when her playful secret is told and then retold throughout her hometown. All she has to do is stand back and fall into fits of giggles as the story changes once again. No one's guessed her secret right just yet! Perfect for lovers of mischievous characters we can't help but love and root for, Carlota teaches her neighborhood and readers alike the joy of letting people tell on themselves when they repeat stories they were told were secrets.  

¡Presénteles a sus pequeños las formas divertidas en que el teléfono del juego puede fallar en inglés y español! ¡Pásalo!

Una niña precoz aprende lo rápido que una historia puede extenderse y cambiar cuando su juguetón secreto se cuenta y luego se vuelve a contar en su ciudad natal. Todo lo que tiene que hacer es dar un paso atrás y caer en un ataque de risa mientras la historia cambia una vez más. ¡Nadie ha adivinado su secreto todavía! Perfecta para los amantes de los personajes traviesos que no podemos evitar amar y apoyar, Carlota le enseña a su vecindario y a los lectores la alegría de dejar que las personas se cuenten a sí mismas cuando repiten historias que les dijeron que eran secretos.
