My pal, Victor by Diane Gonzales Bertrand( Book )
8 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 889 libraries worldwide
Two latino boys experience carefree camaraderie despite one boy's disability. Fun and friendship overpower physical limitations. Why do we choose the friends we do? Victor tells heart-booming ghost stories, claps the loudest at Dominic's baseball games, and performs a fabulous floating frog stroke. Children will see themselves and their friends in these engaging and often comical everyday activities. The last page of the book shows Victor in his wheelchair. Here Dominic quips, "But, the most important thing about my pal, Victor, is that he likes me just the way I am." A heartwarming twist on the typical "disability" story. Soft pastel color pencil drawings capture the realistic aspects as well as the fantasy world explored in this touching tale. Winner of ALA's (American Library Association) Schneider Family Award. New York Reading Association Recommended Reading List. Full text translation in both English and Spanish. Keyword vocabulary page included to introduce words in both languages
