Thank you, Bookish Ambition, for picking Lady Liberty's Holiday for Perfect Picture Book Friday! Love all the activities, especially those Statue of Liberty cookie cutters!

Marta Big and Small has its first review--a really nice one from Horn Book! "This concept book teaches both opposites and simple vocabulary words—in English and Spanish. “Marta is una niña… / …an ordinary girl.” She is “grande” to a bug but “pequeña” to an elephant, “lenta” to a horse but “rápida” to a turtle, “tranquila” to a lion but “ruidosa” to a rabbit. All is well until she’s up against a snake who finds her “sabrosa” (tasty); on a Marta-free spread that follows, the offstage narrator frets, “Marta? ¿Dónde estás?” Readers are quickly reassured of the girl’s safety (she has skittered up a tree—“Phew!”), but was there ever really any doubt about the resourcefulness of this “ingeniosa” child?"

Oh my goodness, I just love the accent of this woman reading 100 Snowmen! I wish I could read it just like her.
