Filled with passion and warmth, these pages have a lovely blend of environmental activism and personal growth that perfectly targets young readers. In Stella Díaz Never Gives Up, Stella's passion and voice are natural and relatable, as are the challenges she faces with her friendships. Her concerns about mixing her ocean-obsessed camp friends with her two best friends from school is a worry most kids face at some point, and Stella models some great ways to bring people together. The sprinkling of Spanish words flows naturally throughout the story and enhances the reader's understanding of Stella's experience, especially her hesitation to speak Spanish because she can't do it perfectly. There are a lot of strategies here for budding activists and environmentalists, and a gentle, inspiring story.
