Pepito has a doll/Pepito tiene una muñeca is a story centered on the experience of a shy young boy who lives with his grandmother. He has only one friend, his doll Lola, until Miguel appears and they begin a joyful adventure together.

Pepito loves his doll Lola. She's his only friend. He takes her to school in secret because his schoolmates will make fun of him. He's shy. The other kids at school don't play with him. Every night he prays to find a friend at school. One day a new student arrives at Pepito's school, Miguel. Find out if Pepito and Miguel become friends in this charming story of a boy and his doll!

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- Teaching young readers how to speak Spanish and English this well thought out shorter read gets to the heart of a very serious problem in the world.  It is a beautiful way to express the feelings of boy and his doll.
