Sample from Hormigas Ocupadas – Busy Ants Spanish Level 1

Tengo una idea.
¡Voy a conseguir un par de ruedas para moverme más rápido!

Por ejemplo, un tipo de olor dice:
“Síganme, por este camino hay un banquete”

Otro dice: “¡Peligro! No vayas ahí.”

¿Quieres ver mis músculos en acción?

No hay problema si la puerta esta cerrada.
Puedo entrar por los espacios más pequeños.

Lo crean o no, cientos de nosotras vivimos felizmente en una colonia.
