Juana and Lucas | Little Lit Book Series

@writesinla shares a unique chapter book about a girl and her dog in Colombia:

Juana is clever and funny with a super engaging way of telling the reader about her life. I adore how she introduces the characters (Lucas her dog, her friend Juli, the city of Bogotá where she lives, her tía, abuelo, and more) by way of illustrated diagrams. Plus, while Juana is learning English in the story, readers are absorbing the Spanish words weaved in! This chapter book is an all around winner!

JUANA & LUCAS was written and illustrated by Juana Medina and published by Candlewick Press.  Read Juana's interview on Horn Book here.
