Welcome! ~ ¡Bienvenidos!

January 2015

Hola amigos,

I love new beginnings. A new year is always full of possibilities and hope. I started it with the eagerness to do better than before in all aspects of life and work.

Last September How Far Do You Love Me became available in Spanish. Hasta dónde me amas? is a paperback for all the little ones that want to practice español .

Looking ahead, I'm excited that the out-of-print Rafi and Rosi books will be re-released by Lee & Low Books in early 2016!

Here is a sampling of the 34 books I've written and/or illustrated:
Arrorró mi niño for the mother-to-be and the littlest angels!

Jay and Ben for children 3-6, specially if they like interacting books!

The Storyteller’s Candle for children ages 7-9, specially if they are into history!

Salsa Stories for children ages 9-11, specially if they like to learn about other peoples' traditions and/or cook!

Alicia Afterimage for teens 14-16 and/or those who’ve been touched by the death of a loved one.

For more information on my work watch the PBS interviews where I talk about Alicia Afterimage and The Storyteller's Candle among other subjects.
