Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

With a fuming young girl on the cover, this bilingual picture book is sure to grab kids with the story of Clara, who just wants space and time for herself. She is tired of sharing with all her brothers and sisters, taking out the trash, and reading books for school. Desperate, Mami insists Clara see the curandera, who tells Clara to do more of everything: take out the neighbors’ trash, share her fun toys with her siblings, read more books. And, surprise—when Clara does all that, life is blissful. Then the curandera tells Clara she can stop. But does the new Clara want that? The clear, unframed pastel pictures with lots of red and brown show Clara sour-faced, furious, and distant from everyone, and kids will enjoy the sulking standoffs as much as the message that sharing and helping can make fun connections. As for Clara being forced to read, in a climactic scene the library is a joyful place where she can reach out for her dreams. Preschool-Grade 3. --Hazel Rochman

Review

"In this bilingual story, Clara is grumpy about her schoolwork, chores, and sharing toys with her siblings. Her mother sends her to a curandera ... [and] Clara finds that her frown soon disappears. Muraida depicts Clara s transformation with rich, celebratory pinks and blues." --Publishers Weekly

"In Brown's latest bilingual offering, a grumpy little Latina girl gets a subtle lesson in caring, sharing and the pleasures of reading." --Kirkus Reviews
