I recently had the opportunity to write about two wonderful bilingual picture books. Marisol McDonald no combina and Marisol McDonald y la fiesta sin igual are written by Monica Brown and illustrated by Sara Palacios. Read more about the books and my extension activities for language learners.
Lee & Low publishes these books and has generously provided two copies of each for me to give to two Spanish Playground readers. Read more about Lee & Low and see the product pages for the books here: Marisol McDonald no combina and Marisol McDonald y la fiesta sin igual.
The protagonist of these stories, Marisol, is bilingual and multicultural and has all she needs to take on today’s complicated world. Marisol McDonald doesn’t match because she chooses to draw from different cultures, languages and interests to create the world she wants to live in. She is unique, but not alone; she is a free spirit that pulls others to her. Her individuality is treasured by her family, friends and teacher.
