The world can present many obstacles—for people with a handicap, simply getting from place to place can be a major challenge. A dog named Pedro wants to explore the world but his lack of sight makes it too dangerous for him to dodge the whizzing cars on a busy street. He meets Rosalie the cat, who is also on a journey but her damaged leg prevents her from crossing the street quickly and unharmed. The pair realizes that they can use each other’s strengths to work together and accomplish the task.
A charming story about friendship and special needs, incorporating Spanish words with humor and wit, Amigos shows that anything is possible with a caring friend by your side. Even with handicaps, Pedro and Rosalie are able to overcome the hardest challenges by sticking together. This book will teach children the value of friendship, acceptance, and perseverance.
