Home Learning | Songs and Stories with Mary and Mike

Mary and Mike are joined by Alicia to learn about how we can communicate, even when we speak different languages. Mary and Alicia read a book in both Spanish and English.

Join us in being curious about how we can communicate through language, music, and even with animals!
