I just received The Pig That is Not a Pig, and Born Into The Pack – I plan to take them to Mexico to give to underprivileged children. I can’t wait to see their faces, when they actually hold books written in both Spanish and English. I have been told that even teachers often cannot afford books in the small city I am going to visit and that many kids will be sharing these books!! — D. Creach, Police Officer
