Señor Pancho Had a Rancho (and Old MacDonald)
Words by René Colato Laínez
Illustrated by Elwood Smith

Open the book. You’ll find two farmers.  OLD MACDONALD on the left page and SENOR PANCHO on the right.  The barnyard animals make different sounds in Spanish than they do in English, and making this point with hilarious illustrations makes for a very funny book.
