"Our students loved having a real author, with fun props visit our elementary. Mr. Flores was funny, patient, and allowed the students to be a part of the program. We are very happy with the decision to invite Mr. . Flores, and we look forward to him coming back with new books and characters."
David Antonio Flores, you were by far one of the best authors I have ever seen visit a school and I have been teaching for 22 years. Thank you very much!!!!
I highly recommend adding Brownie Books to your school and classroom libraries! Brownie Books content is culturally spot on with highly interesting Bilingual story lines. I immediately bought a copy of David Flores’ entire selection of books for my grandchildren! “Mis Chanclas and my Chones” and “Tita la Gallinita” became instant Favs! They are high quality books with amazing illustrations!
Teach your little one the proper way to shoot the soccer ball through David Flores' "Shooting the Ball!" and it's amazing illustrations. Tony has difficulties scoring goals in his soccer games. When his coach shows him the proper way to shoot the ball, he uses it against his neighbor, Mad Maddie. "Step and aim, show your laces, lock your ankle, strike the ball!" Goal! The back of the book contains a soccer game that you can implement with your players to practice shooting the ball while having fun! This book is a bilingual book (English, Spanish) with each language color-coded following common dual-language practices.
Tony tiene dificultades para anotar goles en sus partidos de fútbol. Cuando su entrenador le muestra la forma correcta de disparar la pelota, la usa contra su vecina, Mad Maddie. “¡Pisa y apunta, muestra tus cordones, flexiona tu tobillo, dispara la pelota!” ¡Gol! La parte posterior del libro contiene un juego de fútbol que puedes implementar con tus jugadores para practicar el tiro al balón mientras te diviertes. Este libro es un libro bilingüe (inglés, español) con cada idioma codificado por colores siguiendo las prácticas comunes de dos idiomas.
