Grey wolf blowing down a straw house and a pink pig running away.

Los tres cerditos: we introduced you to Content Developer Stephaney Cortes Alvarado a few months ago. This Spanish version of The Three Little Pigs is her first translation and recording for LibraryCall, and it’s a lot of fun! 

 A yellow bear, a boy with a blue shirt and black rainboots, an owl, a kangaroo, a small pink pig, and a rabbit stand together looking at a sign on a pole

Winnie the Pooh and the North Pole Adventure: although the title would suggest a Christmas tale, this is actually a silly story involving an outdoor adventure in search of the elusive North Pole (which turns out to be a stick that Pooh finds near the river). This story comes from A.A. Milne’s first collection of Winnie-the-Pooh stories, published in 1926.
