El Chupacabras Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
From the best-selling author of Dragons Love Tacos comes a whimsical retelling of the chupacabra folktale, written in a blend of English and Spanish.
A long time ago, a girl named Carla lived on a goat farm with her father, Hector. One night, a goat disappeared from the farm and turned up flat as a pancake. Only one creature could do that - El Chupacabras, the goatsucker! Legend has it that El Chupacabras is a fearsome beast, but you can't believe everything you hear...and sometimes the truth is even more interesting.
Told in equal parts English and Spanish by best-selling author Adam Rubin, this lighthearted take on a modern legend is not told in the traditional bilingual style.
Each sentence is half-Spanish, half-English followed by a repetition of the same line translated the other way around. This mirroring technique allows the languages to intermingle equally. A fun and unique way to introduce either Spanish or English to new listeners.
A note from author Adam Rubin: "I decided to tell this story in an unusual way to explore the beauty of harmony. It's easy to dismiss the unfamiliar, but compassion takes a little more effort. With so many people trumpeting divisiveness right now, it's more important than ever to teach kids that there is more than one way to understand the world."

This book is so much fun, as you get to read in two languages inside one great story. We got this book for our two little ones (2 and 4) They loved the story; especially when the Chupacabra dips his churros in chocolate (My kids loved that). Filled with magic and adventure this book is a fun read, and your kids get to learn new words and meet new friends.
