I highly recommend this fantastic early reader about Juana, her dog Lucas, and her familia. Juana’s Mami is getting married and her life will be changing in big ways, but Juana soon is reassured the love from her Mami will never change. My favorite parts of el libro are the Spanish words worked in the text and the setting - Bogota, Columbia! This Nutmeg nominee series is a modern classic in the making!
