In lively and easy-to-understand text and written in both English
and Spanish, social awareness is promoted through this entertaining story of one boy and his pal Victor.
Colorful illustrations also introduce children to a variety of creatures and places. With simple comparisons,
this book also helps young readers build the bridges of common human understanding.
"My Pal Victor" offers an opportunity for young and old alike to experience anew
the delight of storytelling. The small taste that being different is acceptable and wonderful, which the author weaves in so skillfully makes this book stand
head and shoulders above the crowd.
Truly an enchanting story that reinforces both reading for families and a great way to bridge the gap between
generations while being entertained. Perfect for beginning readers of English or
Spanish. Teachers will love this book as an instrumental teaching tool.
