The illustrations in the book are so vibrant with shades of color with its on unique touch.
There's also a great moment when Marisol is asked why she wanted to try conforming, and suddenly realizes that she can't even remember why it seemed like a good idea.
I would say this would be a great read aloud to any age group, and a read on their own book at about 2nd or 3rd grade.
This is a colorful and delightful story about a little girl with her own special individuality. Students love this book.Published 2 months ago by JP
