Hombre Perro: Fun Spanish Books for Older Kids

It’s hard to find good books that get kids excited about reading in Spanish. That is why I’m excited to be partnering with Scholastic to share with you all about the awesome new Hombre Perro book: El Señor de las Pulgas

Hombre Perro books in Spanish for kids

The Hombre Perro book series for kids is the Spanish editions of Dav Pilkey’s bestselling DOG MAN series. The Hombre Perro series of books in Spanish is ideal for kids 7 and up. Both of my kids love these books (they are 11 and 14).

As my kids get older it’s harder to find books that motivate them to continue reading in Spanish. There’s less time now and both of my kids are at a higher reading level in English however they don’t want to read “little kid” books in Spanish either. The Hombre Perro series is written in a comic book fashion filled with fun and colorful illustrations yet it’s witty, funny and has my laughing out loud as they read.

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.

When a new bunch of baddies bust up the town, Dog Man is called into action — and this time he isn’t alone. With a cute kitten and a remarkable robot by his side, our heroes must save the day by joining forces with an unlikely ally: Petey, the World’s Most Evil Cat. But can the villainous Petey avoid vengeance and venture into virtue?
