J.D. Smith lives in the neighborhood and is so passionate about this book. Since published, this book has received awards and recognition (• 2009 International Latino Book Awards — Best Children’s Picture Book in Spanish — 2nd Place • Criticas Children’s Best Books of 2008). I immediately brought my copy home and read it to the kids. They loved it - we all do.
This story can be purchased in English, Spanish, or English with Spanish words sprinkled through the story.
J.D. Smith is a lovely person who loves presenting this book and I am looking to find ways for Waterfront Academy to partner with him in the future. What a blessing to have him as a neighbor
