La Banana!

by Ginna Pollock

Paperback, full color

pp. 36



La Banana! is a beautiful offering from Ginna Pollock. A picture book and early reader that teaches children (of all ages) a little bit of Spanish vocabulary using common items, cute images and a rhyming text. Language barriers can often separate us, but when we learn to speak to each other, we can make connections, make friends, and enjoy similar interests. Pollocks book helps bridge that gap with children, who are after all, the future citizenry of our diverse American communities and society.
