Hidden Gems at La Casa Azul Bookstore, 1/21/2014

Happy Tuesday everyone! 

Beginning this week we will be reviewing children’s books you might have not come across as frequently. In the great treasure that is our book selection, these hidden gems will be highlighted so as not be missed. 

This week’s book is Estrellita se despide de su isla/ Estrellita Says Good-bye to Her Island by Samuel Caraballo, illustrated by Pablo Torrecilla.

How do you say good-bye to an entire way of life, without knowing what the future holds? 
In this book Estrellita leaves her beloved island on a plane with no return date set. Perfused with a strong sense of nostalgia for one so young, the pictures and rhythmic sentences allow the reader both to have a sense of being on this beautiful island as well as share in the main character’s longing to return to this paradise. If you want to share the beauty of the Caribbean with those that haven’t been or miss being there this the book that will bring you back.

Think this is a great book? 
Make sure to keep an eye out for it and other great finds in our children’s section.
