The latest title in the Victory series!
Family life can feel difficult sometimes. That’s why Bambú started publishing this collection of short stories on personal growing nine years ago.
The simple and magnificent texts by Elisenda Roca accompanied by the amazing and funny illustrations by Cristina Losantos explore universal topics. All those habits, behaviours and values we do also need as adults to deal with everyday life: Good manners, consumerism, being unselfish and independent, keep neat and tidy, greet and communicate with others instead of swearing or getting glued to electronic devices….
Victory series has become an international success. Translated into 13 languages, it keeps spreading worldwide with every new title.
The 10th title, Do Not Say Bad Words!, is aimed at those early readers who absorb all the swear words and curses that adults say. Children imitate them, because they think it’s funny or it makes them feel grownup. They still don’t know that these bad words are not polite and that it is better not to say them because they can offend people.
This story places a focus on grownups in the family who swear a lot, and we help children understand why they shouldn’t copy them.
