From Library Staff
In this funny, whimsical story, a Colombian girl commits to learning English in order to visit an American theme park.
Okay, this is a girl and her dog, but that counts as best friends, right? This has more words per page than others on this list, but the colorful pictures will help with comprehension.
This fun, realistic, and culturally-diverse chapter book features Juana, a spunky student who loves living in Colombia with her lovable dog, Lucas. Most people in Colombia speak Spanish so why should she want to learn English? Her Abuelo has an incentive - a trip to the U.S. to meet Astroman!
