Kids are back to school and the learning is on! I don’t think I’ve ever talked about bilingualism when it comes to my kids before. My boys are not fluent Spanish speakers. They speak English and understand some Spanish, so when I find things to help teach them we go all in. You’ve heard of Dav Pilkey’s DOG MAN series right? Well, the books are in Spanish and we are LOVING reading them in Spanish. I’m very excited to be partnering with Scholastic for a giveaway, so make sure to keep reading and make sure to enter down below!
We are having a blast reading the book and spending time together. As avid fans of Dav Pilkey, this series is so much fun and great for all ages.
About the Series
With its trademark humor and heart, Dog Man launched in August 2016 to multiple starred reviews and was instant bestseller, appealing to kids and critics alike. The series has more than 23 million copies in print to date with translations in 32 languages. Dog Man: Brawl of the Wild, released on December 24, 2018 with a 5 million copy first printing, dominated both adult and children’s bestseller lists, and debuted at #1 overall on the New York Times, USA Today, Wall Street Journal, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists.
Dog Man follows the adventures of a lovable canine superhero who’s part dog and part policeman. With each Dog Man book, readers see the growth and development of the main characters George and Harold through their comics. Their artwork, grammar, as well as their spelling improve as the series progresses.

About the Dog Man “Do Good” Global Tour
This fall, Dav Pilkey’s “Do Good Tour” will bring together kids, families, and educators, to highlight the many ways books inspire—and how each individual can help others make a positive difference wherever they are. Hosted by bookstores and key community partners, all of the events will have a “do good” component to support non-profit literacy organizations, local charities, military families, schools as well as libraries in underserved areas. The “Do Good Tour” officially kicked-off at the Mississippi Book Festival in Jackson, Mississippi on August 17th.
