¡Fun, divertido, fun! I’ve got to be honest and admit mi parcialidad favorable for this children’s book. Como defensora de multilingualism and bilingual literature por supuesto que I love this book, I love the concept, I love Pat Mora’s work. ¡Gracias, thank you, gracias!
As a young girl going through a difficult cultural and language transition, this type of children’s literature would have made el cambio bearable. Book Fiesta not only celebrates children and literature, it celebrates diversity. I read the book with my two-year old and we were both immediately mesmerized by its happy colors, its happy images, and la alegría de los niños con sus libros without regard to their distinctions. I saw and read the fun that es diversidad. I felt connected, I felt accepted, I felt shared, and this is what I enjoy sharing with my children.
For these reasons I invite you, I urge you, to include Book Fiesta! in your child(ren)’s library at home, at school, everywhere and share the fun that is multiculturalism, the fun that is diversity.

On the motivation to study a foreign language… Mostly I was motivated by my personal relationships/friendships with my Spanish teachers throughout Waldorf [Education]. They were always people who inspired and challenged me.
