About the Author…..

Victor D.O. Santos, PhD is an award-winning author, a language-learning expert, and a father to two multilingual and trilingual children. He is best known as the author of the multi-award-winning children’s series Little Polyglot Adventures, which was inspired by his own family history (Victor is originally from Brazil and raises his two children in a multilingual and multicultural household in Iowa, USA, with his Ukrainian wife).

All of Victor’s fun and beautifully illustrated children’s books serve to show children the importance of respecting one another, believing in their true potential, and of trusting the power of love. My Dad, My Rock is based on Victor’s personal family history and the first words in the book were actual words he heard from his son on a starry Saturday night during bedtime reading.
