I'm Hungry!: ¡Tengo Hambre! (English with some Spanish)
Reading Level: K − 1st Grade

A bilingual picture book that's sweet enough to eat about a chatty bluebird and an indecisive T. Rex who can't decide what his next meal should be, introducing readers to basic Spanish and English food vocabulary.

When a bluebird comes upon a dinosaur who's down in the dumps, he asks what's wrong. "¡Tengo hambre!" says the dinosaur. I'm hungry! Does the dinosaur want a banana? "¿Plátano? No." Fish? "¿Pescado? No, gracias." Nothing seems to do the trick! What does dinosaur want to eat?

This delightful bilingual picture book is about finding just the right food--and just the right friend. Perfect for fans of We Don't Eat Our Classmates and Stegothesaurus.
