You may know that whales are mammals, but did you know they evolved from land mammals? Did you know that the world’s largest whale, the Blue Whale, is 98 feet long, and the smallest, the Pygmy Right Whale, is only 21 feet long? (That’s the size of an adult female Great White Shark.) I know, so many cool facts, and this book is full of them! Along with great illustrations, it’s hard to put down.

Vamos! Let's Go To The Market checks all my boxes for what makes a perfect picture book. The artwork is beautiful and fun, there's so much to discover within every page (perfect for repeat readings!) and the conversational mix of English and Spanish makes for a wonderful learning experience. I wish I had had this book as a kid!

A beautiful reminder that kids know love when they feel it, and that love can endure against hateful ideology. This is such a wonderful story with a steadfast, inspirational main character. Love is love.

Kalanthe and Olsa were on an epic adventure a year ago. They fell in love and came back heroes. But now, Kalanthe, an apprentice knight, needs to marry to pay off her debts, and Olsa isn't rich enough to qualify. Olsa is one of the most recognized people in the kingdoms, which makes her work as a thief frustratingly difficult. Told half in flashbacks and half in the more complicated post-adventure present, this story is a fascinating exploration of the question so many high fantasy novels ignore: what comes next?
