Description - Training Day by Raul the Third
Readers will fall in love with Raul the Third's unique visual style as Kooky Dooky helps luchador El Toro train for his next wrestling match! Perfect for readers of Elephant and Piggie, comic book fans, and kids looking to practice both Spanish and English. 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!
