Welcome! ~ ¡Bienvenidos!
You know, it gives me great pleasure to spend time with kids in the joyful discovery of the world of books! At the many family workshops I conduct I've seen children come up with terrific verses and works of art in response to the prompt "I love my mom to..." "Amo a mi mamá hasta..." after learning about the creative process behind How Far Do You Love Me?
I am thrilled that this book, a Latinidad Best Latino Book for 2013, was recently added to the 2014 USBBY list to celebrate International Children's Book Day on April 2nd. It has also been selected as Bank Street College Best Book for Children.
