With bright illustrations by Cassidy N. Bodnar and a charming, bi-lingual storyline by Debra R. Sanchez, Snow Pants for Isabella is sure to please the picture book set. My own children are a bit old for picture books, but they enjoyed the strong-minded character and had fun trying to read the translations on the facing pages. (I’m certain we butchered the pronunciation, but at least it gives them an introduction to other languages.) The story follows the individualist, Isabella, who knows what she wants and sets out to get it. The message is clear. Be yourself. What a lovely thought!



Snow Pants for Isabella by Debra R. Sanchez is available for purchase at Amazon and Tree Shadow Press.
