Chiquita loved this book so much that she started asking for an armadillo for her birthday. I have some little skill in crochet and knitting so I thought I'd see if there was a pattern for the armadillo from the book.
Good news = There is!
Bad news = It's a little beyond what I can manage with a 5 month old in tow.
So, to Grandma and Auntie (who are knitting whizzes) - here's a little hint: This pattern from the author on Ravelry and the book in English or Spanish would make an awesome birthday present.
*Update* Apparently the Spanish version is out of print! Since it's $100+ I don't think this is likely as a birthday present for a pre-schooler. Grandma has informed me her plan is to create a bilingual book by buying an English version and handwriting in the Spanish text! I think it's a great idea and will make the book extra personal for Chiquita.
