Finalist at the 2011 and 2014 International Latino Book Awards. Cocorina has a big heart, but she's a bit clumsy and forgetful... A delightful tale told in rhyme, ideal for learning to accept the faults of those around us and to ignore gossip.

Cocorina had a big heart, but she was clumsy and forgetful too. She always had a thousand things in mind, so imagine when she gave birth to three chicks

Sometimes, her children ended up finding themselves in complicated situations due to the occasional distractions from their mother. In the farmyard, the other hens gossiped and insinuated Cocorina wasn't a good mother to her children, and the rumor started to spread... Suddenly the rumor had already arrived to the city and soon to the most remote part of the world. Everyone said that Cocorina did not treat her children well.

Although not everything was going as Cocorina would have liked, she did not stop striving for the welfare of her three beloved children. But being a good mother was not an easy task: more than once did Cocorina mess up, but she never gave up and, right after apologizing to her three little ones, she hugged them and showed them that she loved them very much.

And the rumors didn't matter, because the three chicks were clear that their mother was unique and that they would not change her for anything in the world.

Finalista en los International Latino Book Awards 2011 y 2014. La gallina Cocorina tiene un gran coraz n, pero es un poco torpe y olvidadiza... Un cuento lleno de emoci n escrito en verso que nos ense a que nadie es perfecto.

Cocorina era una gallina muy simp tica y cari osa, pero tambi n algo despistada y torpe. El hecho de ser mam de tres pollitos no ayudaba demasiado: Cocorina andaba de aqu para all con mil cosas a la cabeza

Sus pollitos en m's de una ocasi n acababan encontr ndose en situaciones complicadas debido a alg n que otro despiste de su mam . Las gallinas empezaron a criticar a Cocorina por no ser una buena madre, y, de pronto, el rumor ya hab a circulado por la ciudad hasta llegar al lugar m's remoto del mundo: todos dec an que Cocorina no trataba bien a sus hijos.

Si bien no todo iba como a Cocorina le hubiese gustado, ella no dejaba de esforzarse por el bienestar de sus tres queridos hijos. Pero ser una buena mam no era tarea f cil: m's de una vez Cocorina meti la pata, pero ella no se rend a nunca y, pidiendo perd n a sus tres peque os, los abrazaba y les demostraba que los quer a much simo.

Y nada importaron los rumores, porque los tres pollitos ten an claro que su mam era nica y que no la cambiar an por nada en el mundo.
