El Toro & Friends: Training Day by Raúl the Third
"Bursting with imagination and creativity! Your kids will go loco for El Toro!" —Jeff Kinney, author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series
From New York Times bestselling, Pura Belpré Award-winning author-illustrator Raúl the Third, Training Day finds El Toro preparing for his wrestling match in Spanish and English in this graphic-novel-style El Toro & Friends paper-over-board reader from the World of ¡Vamos!
Little Lobo introduced readers to his wrestling hero El Toro in ¡Vamos! Let’s Go to the Market! Now El Toro is off on his own adventures in this early reader series!
Task #1: Getting out of bed. Usually that’s not so hard, but being the champion luchador isn’t easy. Today, El Toro is feeling uninspired. But his coach, Kooky Dooky, knows that practice makes better and it’s important for El Toro to stay in shape and keep training!
These eye-popping illustrations will appeal to comic book fans and encourage visual literacy, with an easy-to-follow mix of Spanish and English vocabulary words. Readers will cheer as El Toro’s spirits are lifted with a little help from his community and he trains hard to win his next big wrestling match against The Wall!
