Packed with positivity and a soft, nurturing undertone, author Angela Dominguez makes Stella's bilingual life both a centerpiece and a natural part of her every day in this uplifting, relatable story. Stella Díaz Has Something to Say takes the struggles many elementary school students feel about their place in the school, evolving friendships, family struggles, and doubting their own abilities and shows how to navigate those difficulties with grace, humor, and kindness. One key piece is the support Stella gets from her mom and her older brother, who understand what's happening and quietly help her see the big picture.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
