Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2–Marisol McDonald is fiercely determined not to match. The character came out of Brown's own experience growing up in a bicultural home with a North American father and a Peruvian mother and not being sure where she fit in. This title finds Marisol preparing for her birthday party. Her friends ask her what sort of party she should have, and, of course, Marisol doesn't want one theme. When she goes shopping with her Mami, she insists on buying clothes that don't match. When the party arrives, Marisol has dressed up as a soccer-player-pirate-princess-unicorn. The mismatched party is a success, and is topped by a Skype visit with the child's Peruvian grandmother. Pair this with Marisol McDonald Doesn't Match/Marisol McDonald no combina (Children's Book Pr., 2011) for a dress-up storytime.α(c) Copyright 2013.

Review

"The confident, exuberant, bicultural-and-proud Marisol McDonald is back . . . . The 'unique, different and one-of-a-kind' Marisol McDonald continues to stand out as a character. She is self-assured and caring, without straying into didacticism. Her bicultural identity is a point of pride that imbues her personality. Pura Belpré Honor recipient Palacios' mixed-media illustrations once again visually express Marisol’s originality. Bits of cut paper add unexpected texture, and the warm tones convey the closeness in Marisol’s family. Domínguez’s Spanish translation is also noteworthy; its emphasis on capturing the spirit of the language over literal words makes this book equally joyful in both English and Spanish. A broadly appealing bilingual and bicultural celebration of being oneself and the love of family."

Format: Hardcover
These books are perfect for kids 2nd grade and under -- even if a child is reading chapter books on their own and is a 1st or 2nd grader, they will enjoy these books. I love these books. MY kids loves these books. Marisol's mom is from Peru and her dad is a Scottish background. The author uses cultural elements from Marisol's background to create a very rich and beautiful story. The illustrations are gorgeous and the storyline is sweet. The story is told in both Spanish and English -- readers can choose to stick with one language or do both.

In this installment of Marisol, she has been saving her money and wants to see her grandmother in Peru. She is also planning her upcoming birthday party. The book follows Marisol as she plans a party that will incorporate the diverse interests for all of her friends and her parents plan a suprirse for Marisol to keep her in touch with her grandmother who is so far away.
A sweet but fun read. A treat visually and young kids will ask to read this book again. My kids do.

Format: Hardcover
Marisol McDonald is a little girl who is comfortable with contrasts. She has one Peruvian parent and one Scottish-American parent. She likes polka dots and stripes. And when it comes time to choose a theme for her birthday party, she feels no need to pick just one. Her friends each want her to have a party that reflects their own interests: soccer, pirates, princesses, etc. Instead, she tells each of her friends a different theme, so that when they all come in different costumes she gets them all to mix and match. Soon Marisol's party is a "clash bash" fiesta of pirates, princesses and pinatas. Once her friends get into the spirit of it, they have a blast.

I liked the message of rejecting rigid gender stereotypes and enjoying all of the things you like, all at once, without worrying about following convention. But then, I hope I'm already raising my daughter that way. We've never been a family that supports the notion of "princesses for girls" and "sports cars for boys." As a matter of fact, Marisol's friends in the book would probably irritate me in real life. But I loved the way she accepted their individual interests and still got them to try new ideas. We need more kids like Marisol!

The book itself is in both English and Spanish so if you're able, you can read it in both languages. I don't speak Spanish, but I was able to follow along just enough that I think Magda and I may have learned a few new words.

Magda's Take:
"I don't really think I would have a princess party or a pirate party, but I do like the idea of having a dress up costume party where everyone shares costumes. Can we do that? Everyone could bring their Halloween costumes over!"

This is a fun and colorful book for young children. Marisol is planning her 8th birthday party and she knows 2 things for sure - she wants her party to be "unique, different and one-of-a-kind" and she wants to see her grandmother.

With the help of her family and friends Marisol's day is very special and one she will always remember.

This bright and cheerful book gave our family wonderful discussion starters about family, friends, and those very special characteristics that make us all unique.
