Description: 

René Has Two Last Names / René tiene dos apellidos
Young René is from El Salvador, and he doesn’t understand why his name has to be different in the United States. Without his second last name, René feels incomplete, “like a hamburger without the meat or a pizza without cheese or a hot dog without a wiener.”

So when the students are given a project to create a family tree, René is determined to explain the importance of using both of his last names.

With whimsical illustrations and entertaining text, this sequel is sure to please fans and gain many new ones while explaining an important Hispanic cultural tradition.
