My Dog Just Speaks Spanish

When Aurora came to the United States, she learned to speak English. But her spaniel, Nena, did not. Sweet Nena loves to give besos, and she knows only Spanish. She doesn’t know SIT, but she does know SIÉNTATE. She doesn’t know WAIT, but she does know ESPERA. And while TREAT doesn’t mean anything to Nena, she can certainly sniff out a POSTRE!

At the park, Nena may not know what the other dog owners are saying, but she and Aurora will always understand each other just fine. Borrowing from her lived experience, Venezuelan-American author-illustrator Andrea Cáceres offers a gentle, charmingly illustrated ode to love that extends a hand — or a paw — to readers who may feel displaced or are learning a new language themselves.

Description

"Aurora helps her new friends and neighbors interact with Nena, teaching them Spanish words, and many folks they encounter can speak Spanish just fine on their own. Will Nena ever learn English? Aurora knows that with her help, Nena will be able to figure it out eventually, and Aurora can depend on her four-legged friend, too. After all, Nena is a '¡BUENA CHICA!' A breezy delight, Cáceres’ picture-book debut takes a modest premise to humorous heights, bolstered by a reassuring message to readers who may be in a similar spot as Nena.
