The first one is lovely for reading aloud – rhythm, syllable count, part-rhymes
before exploring the repeated (high frequency) words : cada, con, su
and the meanings of some of the pairings.

Are there equivalents in English for pata / pato? gato / gata? What other gender pairings do we have in English?

What other sorts of pairings are in the poem?
and what other sorts of pairings do we know in English? (hat & …, knife and …, cup and …, bread and …)
