Each episode of the children's series ends with the following:

El libro gordo te enseña,
el libro gordo entretiene,
y yo te digo contenta,
hasta la clase que viene.


What does "y yo te digo contenta" mean? It's a strange wording.

Ah, I think I've figured it out. It's a dependent clause, so they're saying something like:

and I tell you contented, "until next class!"

    I think "happy" would be a better translation rather than "contented", but you got the meaning.
