About the Book

John is an eight-year-old American boy who yells “Hello” into an unfamiliar and unknown land. An echoing voice answers his call with “Hola, hola, hola.” The voice gets closer and closer until another boy arrives—a boy named Juan, “un amigo nuevo.” Although the boys speak different languages, they soon learn of their similarities. They both love football and fútbol. They both love to read. And throughout the day they play games, eat and share snacks. They become great friends. While from different cultures, John and Juan’s friendship teach them that their lives “echo” the other’s life in many ways. Echo Amigo portrays two boys from different worlds becoming great friends while learning to appreciate each other’s cultures. The story includes phrases in both English and Spanish as well as a Spanish translation guide.
