Every since reading The Dreamer by Pamela Munoz Ryan, I have been trying to figure out how to ladder it for certain students. With this book, I have found the perfect introduction. Brown does a fabulous job of summarizing Neruda's life into 32 pages and still manage to touch on important facts and themes. The text is enhanced by Paschkis' illustrations in wonderful earth tones and with words in English & Spanish woven into the design. I read the book through once and then returned to just admire and analyze the pictures. Definitely a must have for any collection on poets, especially Neruda. Additionally the students and teachers I have shared this book with have certainly reacted as I hoped.

Readers do not have to know who Pablo Neruda is/was to enjoy & be moved by this beautiful picture book. Monica Brown has brought another biography to not only highlight important Latinos but to emphasis the joy of words, books & the joy of working hard to accomplish your passion. Hopefully, readers will note the importance of teachers in Neruda's life. With introduction by teachers, librarians & other adults this book, as so many books do, could change children's lives. Julie Paschkis' charming & flowing illustrations in spectacular colors that make the eyes smile make this book fantastic. The streams of words in English & Spanish add to the text though are not bilingual. Surely, every library that serves children should find some way to add this book to their collection.

This is a great biography of Pablo Neruda who was once known as Neftalí and his love for writing poetry. The content is wonderfully worded and age appropriate for young children when learning about a great writer. This book demonstrates that opinions and concerns can be voices heard through appropriate poetry. It shows that many citizens were overlooked in Chile and needed people like Pablo Neruda to write about it thier concerns. Monica Brown chose the proper words to express that Pablo Neruda loved people, places, and things which benefited to his wonderful poetic writing.

The illustrations by Julie Paschkis are just as wonderful as the text in the book. Each picture shows the love that Pablo Neruda had which allowed him to write and help voice the struggles the people from Chile had. Each picture is colorful, clear, and detailed keeping young and older reader engaged.

This is a wonderful book for children AND adults. The drawings are fantastic. Julie Pashkis should be nominated for a Caldecott Medal for her illustrations. The flowing and mingling of English and Spanish words are amazing. This is a good introduction to the poet, but if you've read some of Neruda's poetry, the story and especially the illustrations, will be much more meaningful to you.

This is a wonderful book on the history of Chilean poet Pablo Neruda . The illustrations are beautiful, colorful and rhythmic , full of words in English and Spanish . I especially recommend for Latino parents in English speaking countries who want to convey their culture to their children in an entertaining and visually charming way.

With beautiful writing and breathtaking illustrations, this book is magnificent! I especially loved all the words embedded in the art. It's a very simple version of Pablo Neruda's story, but it still manages to be powerful and inspiring.

Beautiful narration and illustrations, I love reading this to my daughter, I hope it sparks her curiosity so that when she's older she reads Pablo Neruda's poetry herself.
