Welcome! ~ ¡Bienvenidos!

November/December 2016,

Hola amigos,

I am thrilled with the continuous praise for ¡Olinguito, de la A a la Z! Descubriendo el bosque nublado; Olinguito, from A to Z! Unveiling the Cloud Forest.
It was selected as a Washington Post Best Book of 2016, a Kirkus Reviews Best Book of 2016 and a New York Public Libraries Best Book of 2016. In addition the National Council of Teachers of English recently announced it was selected as an Orbis Pictus Award Honor Book for Outstanding Nonfiction for Children.

Just in time for that special holiday gift I will be presenting an interactive program at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History with the scientist in attendance! Dr. Kristofer Helgen, the zoologist that led the team of discovery of the olinguito, will be present. So join us with your children and your questions!

Here is a sampling of the 36 books I've written and/or illustrated:

How Far Do You Love Me? for baby showers or newlyweds

Arrorró mi niño for the mother-to-be and the littlest angels!

Jay and Ben for children 3-6, specially if they like interactive 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.
