The Lopez Family: Science Fair Day is the first story in a fun series featuring Felix Lopez and his two dads. We are introduced to a family of scientists who love to invent new things like robots and Super Magic Glue. This story takes you on a journey as Felix learns how to cope in difficult situations, and he teaches children life lessons by his examples. Felix invents a remote control airplane for his school's science fair contest. Throughout the book, Felix encounters various obstacles, but he finds ways to overcome his challenges with the help, love, and support of his two dads. This tale touches upon subjects such as bullying, not giving up, and reinforces basic moral values such as honesty and integrity. Through this affectionate story, Felix shows children that it's okay to be themselves and to always keep a positive attitude even when times seem rough.
