Synopsis: A young Hispanic boy admires his older brother and wants to be like him when he is older. The artist has captured the affection between the two, and the bilingual text is simple and effective.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Make a badge (any shape) with pictures of you and your siblings doing the things you like to do together (if none, draw book characters).
•  Act out the story as a play, and act out the things you like to do with your family.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
