Medina has created another winning addition to her early chapter-book series, which continues to introduce Spanish vocabulary and incorporate frequently hilarious illustrations to further support young readers. This story also tackles serious issues, such as pregnancy complications and the premature birth of a baby, but it does so in a kid-friendly way that acknowledges the emotions such experiences can cause. Another fantastic adventure with Juana.

Medina’s marvelous, sprawling cartoon illustrations, occupying a full or sometimes double page, bring her characters and Bogota itself to life.
