Join us in welcoming award-winning children's book author Alexandra Alessandri to the Spanish River Library to celebrate Children's Book Week! She will read her newest book, Isabel and Her Colores Go to School, which won the gold medal in Young Children's Literature in the 2021 Florida Book Awards. Children's Book Week is a new annual event funded by Friends of the Boca Raton Public Library. The author's presentation will be followed by a fun craft for children ages 4 and up.
About the book: English, with its blustery blues and whites, just feels wrong to Isabel. She prefers the warm oranges and pinks of Spanish. As she prepares for class at a new school, she knows she's going to have to learn -- and she would rather not! Her first day is uncomfortable, until she discovers there's more than one way to communicate with friends. This is a universal story about feeling new and making new friends.
