At 11 a.m. – English version.

Jabuti

Of all the animals in the rain forest, Jabutí was the favorite. His shell was smooth and shiny, and the songs he played on his flute were sweet. But his music was a reminder, too, of the mischievous pranks Jabutí sometimes played.

(De todos los animales de la selva Jabuti era el favorito. Su caparazón era suave y brillante y todas las canciones que tocaba con su flauta eran dulces. Pero su música era también un recordatorio de las travesuras maliciosas que Jabutí a veces hacía.)

At 11 a.m. – English version (All in English)

At 12:30 p.m –English version with some Spanish to help understand

“What on earth is a Full Belly Bowl?” the very old man wonders — but he soon finds out. No matter how much he eats from it, the bowl magically refills itself. For the first time in a long time, the old man isn’t hungry. Then he discovers that the bowl can refill itself with other things — even his one copper coin — and now it looks like he’ll never want for anything again!

His excitement makes him careless, however, and as he hurries off to spend some of his new wealth, he leaves the bowl right side up. And who can say what might get into the Full Belly Bowl in his absence?”

From Simon & Schuster.
