Little Chickies|Los Pollitos
Canticos Apps are a fun way to introduce kids to a second language
and early ed concepts like numbers and shapes – in two languages!
“Every book that comes out of Canticos is a delight…A bilingual Spanish/English storytime dream come true.”
Elizabeth Bird – School Library Journal
“So often at the library I search for bilingual books to give families to feel comfortable, and excited to read, and these books are the perfect combination. They celebrate Spanish-speaking culture in such a perfect way that makes it fun for everyone to read and learn, no matter what language you speak at home!”
Kristin Aldrich, New York Public Library
“Just what we’ve been waiting for. Bright and cheery, these simple and sturdy bilingual books are great fun to read aloud and come with a lift-the-flap bonus. Thank you, Canticos!”
Valerie Lewis, Owner, Hicklebee’s Children’s Bookstore
It’s the holiday season and all of the Canticos characters have gathered together to celebrate their traditions and welcome in the New Year. Join us as we celebrate the joy of the season.
Our little froggy Coquí has a song she likes to sing to the beat of the conga. As she sings it, her friends come along, so she incorporates each one of them into her song as they show up.
Mama Hen is so busy but she always makes time for fun activities with her Little Chickies. She's hidden a whole bunch of eggs, and the chickies can't wait to find each one, counting them as they go along.
Pin Pon is in charge, and he's going to teach us all about heads, shoulders, knees and toes but, our Little Chickies also want to join and sing about their tummies and their wings!

Sammy is cooking up something yummy, and Benji can't wait to taste it. In this fun song, we chop up our veggies and learn their names one at a time.
Rain or shine, Kiki, Ricky and Nicky enjoy all kinds of weather while celebrating one of Mexico's most famous songs. Build weather vocabulary while singing along to our original lyrics.
Our three Little Chickies are going out for a swim dressed up like fishies. But, Mama Hen always says, "don't talk to strangers,” so when a shark wants to play they’ll have to say "no!"

It’s a celebration! Canticos characters go from house to house, rounding up their friends for a large “parranda” at Sammy’s house. Good food, good music and good holiday cheer.
