English, with its blustery blues and whites, just feels wrong to Isabel. She prefers the warm oranges and pinks of Spanish. As she prepares for class at a new school, she knows she's going to have to learn — and she would rather not!
Her first day is uncomfortable, with some misspoken words and a misunderstanding that means she misses out on an offer of friendship from a classmate! Fortunately, when it's time to color, she discovers there's more than one way to communicate with friends — and the experience reassures her that there is a place for her, in both English and Spanish, at her new school.
This is a universal story about feeling new and making new friends that kids will love! Poetic text and vibrant illustrations will draw young readers into the story and help them understand Isabel's emotions. With Spanish words sprinkled throughout, and a full Spanish translation on every page, this is the perfect book to celebrate bilingualism and how friendship can cross almost any border.
