Little Donkey/Mi Burrito Sabanero is a bilingual (English & Spanish) holiday app based on one of the most popular Christmas carols in Spanish: “Mi Burrito Sabanero” (The Little Donkey from the Savannah), which tells the tale of a journey with a trotting donkey to Bethlehem to meet baby Jesus.

The app is based on the bilingual book by Canticos and includes the original song lyrics in three activities: Sing Along, Read To Me, and Read To Myself.

The app stars a charming donkey and his rider, a little chick named Ricky Chicky who trot across the screen on their way to Bethlehem, accompanied by other charming characters from the Canticos collection of Spanish nursery songs. The parade of colorful characters through the savannah, bearing gifts and musical surprises, makes for a whimsical journey with a magical ending when they meet the Holy Family and Baby Jesus.

Sing along reading the lyrics at the bottom of the page or make them go away and just enjoy the music and the imagery. Read yourself and play with the characters, unlocking instruments and sounds in this magical world.
