When Lucia forgets her homework on the table at home, Pepe springs into action to bring it to her. With only 10 minutes to spare, he knows he has to act fast. But how can he resist helping a bird avoid capture by a cat? And how can he walk by a dog trapped inside a car without alerting someone? Pepe’s good deeds come back to help him when a band of ninja cats tries to stop his mission.
El Perro con Sombrero meets Los Gatos con Gelatos is a cute bilingual tale told in English and Spanish to help language learners of both types. Written by Derek Taylor Kent and illustrated by Lynx Animation Studios, each line of El Perro appears in black print for English and red print for Spanish. Pepe is an animated pup, and it’s easy to look at his facial expressions to follow along with what he’s thinking and feeling. It’s fun to watch as he helps out other animals and battles the evil cats.
El Perro is great to read over and over again not only because it helps to reinforce language skills, but also because it’s a lot of fun.
