Chris P. Bacon: My Life So Far is an adorable story of an extremely unique pig who was born without his hind legs. In the beginning, Dr. Lucero, a veterinarian, takes him in, gives him his cute moniker (Chris P. Bacon), and quickly becomes part of his family.

In the middle of the story, a cart was built for him by Dr. Lucero. Like a child riding a bicycle for this first time, Chris P. found himself unable to "get going." A video on YouTube was posted and this started a media frenzy on him. He traveled and went onTV shows. He was even called "inspiring."

In the end, Chris P. shares that determination and help from others can lead to doing many great things. He thinks that it's "cool to be yooooo-neek!" The last pages of the book also have pictures of Chris P. in his baby days, with friends, and during some of his happy times.

This book is a treasure of a story for all children. The message being that we are unique, and a little determination and help goes a long way.

I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for this review. The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment of the product.

Reseña del libro Chris P. Bacon: My Life So Far

Chris P. Bacon: My Life So Far (en español sería Chris P. Bacon: Mi vida hasta ahora) es una historia adorable de un puerquito único que nació sin patas traseras. En el principio del libro, el Dr. Lucero, un veterinario, lo hace parte de su familia y le da su lindo apodo (Chris P. Bacon). (En inglés, el nombre Chris P. significa la palabra crispy. Crispy quiere decir crujiente y el apellido, Bacon, significa tocino.)

En la parte del medio del libro, el Dr. Lucero le construyó un carro. Como un niño aprendiendo a usar una bicicleta por primera vez, Chris P. no pudo avanzar con su carrito. Un video en YouTube fue subido y esto ocasionó una frenesí de los medios. Viajó y fue a varios shows de televisión. Hasta lo llamaron "inspiring" o inspirante.

Al final del libro, Chris P. comparte que la determinación y ayuda de otros puede llevar a uno a hacer grandes cosas . Incluso piensa que es "cool to be yooooo-neek" o ¡es padre ser único! Las últimas páginas tienen fotos de Chris P. un sus días de infancia, con amigos y durante algunos momentos félices.

Este libro es un tesoro de cuento para todos los niños. El mensaje es que somos únicos y un poco de determinación y ayuda es significativamente valioso.

Recibí este libro gratis de la casa editorial Hay House para esta reseña. La opinión en este reseña es imparcial y refleja mi opinión honesta del producto.

I just finished reading Chris P. Bacon My Life So Far... to my five year old son. At first he wasn't too sure about it. He's into Ninjago and other action heroes these days. So I brought up the youtube video that shows the little piglet learning to walk using the wheels his veterinarian caretaker fashioned for him. (Chris was born without the use of his hind legs.) Halfway through the video, my son was ready, and wanted me to read him the book. The story held his attention. He was fascinated by the colorful artwork, and is sleeping with the book now. Older children will probably enjoy this book as well. It's a cute, fun story with bright, beautifully illustrated pictures. It also has a nice message, in that it shows young kids how a disability doesn't have to stop you from moving forward in life, you just adjust your approach and think positive.

I just finished reading this lovely book to my kids, and they loved it. The story is about a piglet that was born without the use of his hind legs and has a little wheelchair that helps him get around. Based on true events, we had watched a youtube video of this little guy and were charmed instantly. What I really liked best about this book, is that it lets children know that even if you are a little different from others, you can still accomplish big things and be an inspiration to others!
