    1. Pedro and the Padre is about a young boy who is so lazy while working at home that his father sends him off to find work on his own. On this journey, Pedro continues to be lazy for some time until he realizes the importance of hard work. The pictures could be difficult to depict and each page was very wordy. It also could be hard to follow for the preschool/kindergarten age. Most likely best for 2nd-5th grade.
