|Me and Hannia with a dolphin|
My dad expressed an interest in books for he and Hannia to read together so I stocked up on my some of my favorite books. Since Hannia speaks Spanish as her first language I also tried to find books in Spanish. I ended up with a stack of classics like Charlotte's Web, The BFG, the first two Harry Potter books and as well as Esperanza Renace and El Bosque de los Pigmeos both in Spanish.
Yesterday I got a thank you email from my dad saying they are currently reading Charlotte's Web and Esperanza Renace (Esperanza Rising in Spanish) together. They are very thankful for the Spanish books as he says they are harder for him to find.
My dad isn't a big reader unless the book is about computer-y things. He is also a dad and not a mom, meaning he doesn't think about things like thank you cards and stuff so to get a thank you email from him is a pretty big deal.
I am now off to my local Savers in hopes of finding more books in Spanish.
What books have you given that have been a big hit with the recipient?
