Note: 
A bi-lingual, English and Spanish, story that confronts the issue of name-calling and prejudice. In the heat of an argument, Benjamin's best friend hurls an ethnic slur at him. The exact words are not revealed but Benjamin is hurt and seeks solace from his father, who helps him to understand that his Jewish-Hispanic heritage is something to be proud of. The ending is pat, the illustrations are pedestrian, but the issue is not one that is dealt with often in children's books.
