DOGMAN Book Series By Dav Pilkey Now Available in Spanish HOMBRE PERRO & A Giveaway

Being a bilingual mom who has always loved reading books to her kids, it's extra special 
when we find one of our favorite books in Spanish. It helps with the translating. Miguel grew up reading the DOGMAN series and I remember the times we'd read it together and I'd tell him what it meant in Spanish. The only down side about translating a book verbally is that your child can't see how the words are written and that is not good if you want them to learn how to read and write in that language. So imagine how happy this momma was when the Dogman series came out in Spanish, back in 2017.

The first book in the Hombre Perro series was released on August 29, 2017. 
3 years later and we are now on the 5th book - Hombre Perro: El Señor De Las Pulgas.

What Is Hombre Perro: El Señor De Las Pulgas Book 5 About:

Cuando un grupo de villanos irrumpe en la ciudad, Hombre Perro acude a la acción... y esta vez no está solo. Junto a un adorable gatito y un extraordinario robot, nuestros héroes deben unir fuerzas con un aliado inesperado: Pedrito, el gato más malvado del mundo. Pero, ¿podrá el malvado Pedrito evitar la venganza y aventurarse en la virtud?

When a new bunch of baddies bust up the town, Dog Man is called into action -- and this time he isn't alone. With a cute kitten and a remarkable robot by his side, our heroes must save the day by joining forces with an unlikely ally: Petey, the World's Most Evil Cat. But can the villainous Petey avoid vengeance and venture into virtue?

Valentina has not put the book down, she's loving the chance to bond with big brother who is helping with taking turns to read the book to her. That's the great thing about the Hombre Perro series, that kids who are just beginning to read will be captivated by the fun drawings and will want to read because they want to know what's going on. 
Valentina can't stop laughing!

She even made me clear out one of my bookshelves so she could add her Hombre Perro books, I love that she loves them but not that happy about making me take my books out - haha.
I've been invaded by a little bookworm.
Happy to be able to share this book series with Miguel and now Valentina.
