¿Quieren jugar? (Confetti Kids #2)
By Paula Yoo
Illustrated by Shirley Ng-Benitez
Es un día cálido y soleado, y los amigos se dirigen al parque del vecindario para jugar. ¿Qué deberían jugar? Henry quiere jugar básquetbol y Padma quiere jugar <
Finalmente a Pablo se le ocurre una gran idea: jugar a imaginar. Es un juego que todo el mundo puede jugar fácilmente. Pueden imaginar que son arqueólogos, astronautas o exploradores. ¡No hay límites para lo que imaginan que pueden ser!
It's a warm, sunny day, and the gang heads to the neighborhood playground to play. What should they play? Henry wants to play basketball, and Padma wants to play Follow the Leader.
Finally Pablo comes up with a great idea: to play pretend. It's a game that everyone can do easily. They can pretend to be archaeologists, astronauts, and explorers. There's no limit to what they imagine they can be!
