Colibrí Children’s Adventures produces bilingual picture books with a message and a song embedded in each story. The books features brilliant water color illustrations, with a mystical, magical hummingbird, Colibrí, leading the adventures. Full musical notation and fun facts are included in the back of each book.
By clicking on the read-aloud tab, you can hear each story in both English and Spanish. You can also listen to the songs and find downloadable fun activities on their respective tabs.
Leslie and Robin give presentations in schools, libraries and conferences. They perform the songs, read the books plus hold discussions of the writing and painting processes. Activities include teaching the songs and writing workshops.

“If you are looking for a fun and entertaining program for young Children through elementary age, I highly recommend Leslie Woods and her Colibri Adventures. Leslie has written two beautiful bilingual English/Spanish books that are a joy for all ages. The stories and illustrations take you on a wonderful journey through different countries and they also incorporate an original song. She presents them in the best way possible: A story time filled with a reading of one of her books (and Leslie herself speaks both English and Spanish fluently!) guitar playing, singing, and dancing. Leslie has the rare ability to adjust her story time from one moment to the next based on the Audience’s needs, which is especially important when working with very young children.”
