This sweet family story will be best enjoyed by readers who speak both Spanish and English, as Lucía uses Spanglish, seamlessly moving back and forth between the two languages. The accompanying illustrations have a charming childlike feel that complements Lucía’s cheer and provides visual context for readers who don’t speak Spanish. Lucía’s family members represents the Latinx community’s racial diversity. A warm family account that will ring true with many Latinx children.
Lucía lives in a yellow house with her large and loving family, and in Sala and Hoang’s warm picture book, readers are invited to walk through her cozy home. . . . Sala and Hoang have created a book that celebrates home, family, and togetherness that will leave readers feeling right at home with Lucía.
A celebration of home and family.
