A classic story, first published in 1956, Harry, el perrito sucio tells the story of Harry, a white dog with black spots, who runs away from home and has some fun getting dirty until he is a black dog with white spots. Upon returning home, Harry has a hard time convincing his family that he is Harry until he tricks them into giving him a bath, and they discover his true identity.

Children love seeing the pictures and hearing the sounds of desert animals as they read this rhythmic, lyrical chant. Bright and decorative geometrical drawings and predictable, repetitive text draw them into the atmosphere of the desert. This book is bilingual. We use it to teach Escucha in Lesson 22 of Sonrisas Level I. (9 x 8)
