Un pato en Nueva York

  Listen to sn excerpt



Story and songs by Connie Kaldor Illustrated by Fil & Julie Performed by Inés Canepa

A story about a little duck with a big dream and his lonesome journey to New York City in hopes of bringing his ducky dance to the Broadway stage. Along the way, issues of courage, self-esteem, friendship and encouragement are addressed. There’s a strong urge to cheer on this little guy in this never-give-up-on-your dreams narrative.  The CD includes 12 happy-go-lucky songs such as “Couac, couac, couac” and “J’adore les tomates.” Quirky and fun artwork adds to the book’s jovial tone.

EN ESPAÑOL La historia-canción que da título al libro es sobre un patito de la pradera que tiene un gran sueño – ir a la cuidad de Nueva York y hacer su baile de patito en Broadway. Su viaje aventurero parece condenado al fracaso, hasta que conoce a una camionera llamada Gran Betty. Ella le señala la dirección correcta y le da el empujoncito que necesita para afrontar la Gran Manzana. Canciones adicionales presentan a caimanes que bailan el vals a la medianoche, niñas que cantan fuera de tono para que les arrojen tomates y babosas que cantan opera y salen a hurtadillas en la noche para bailar el boogie-woogie.
