This heartfelt bilingual picture book is a vibrant celebration of self and embracing our differences. Wepa weaves in cultural elements and highlights the beauty of intergenerational bonds. Mia is curious and smart, she's fashionable and creative, but sometimes she just doesn't fit in. Still she loves who she is! Abuela serves as a loving and wise role model, embracing and celebrating her differences while empowering Mia to find her own joy. This fun-loving picture book shares unique stories through relatable brown-skinned characters depicted in colorful and vibrant illustrations that will draw kids in. J. de laVega's colorful artwork beautifully complements the narrative, making this a delightful read for kids and families to enjoy together. Each page tells the story in English and Spanish, making this a great book for bilingual families or those that want to learn a new language.

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.
