La madre ocupada
When things get lost, the logical solution is to look for them. Sometimes we are so busy looking that we don’t see what is right under our noses. Lourdes is busy (ocupada). She tries to make time for her son’s problems, but sometimes her own problems get in the way, such as when she needs some ginger (jengibre) for her cake (pastel). This story has multiple repetitions of ¿buscaste? (did you look?) And busqué (I looked) as well as places around the house. Will there be time to find everything? Find out in “La madre ocupada”. No matter where you are in your language journey, stories will help you on your way. You can find a transcript of the story and read along at smalltownspanishteacher.com. Happy listening!
