Juana Martinez-Neal visited the Carle to introduce her new board books featuring Alma. In these sweetly pink-toned books, Alma identifies her body parts and her family (including Pajarito).

Zonia, an Indigenous Asháninka girl who lives in the Peruvian Amazon, goes about her day in the rain forest, following a blue morpho butterfly and encountering many other animals as well, from a two-toed sloth to a coati to a pink Amazon river dolphin. On her way home, though, she encounters an area of the forest that has been cut down. She tells her mother, "The forest needs help!" and promises to answer the call.

Back matter includes more information about the Asháninka people, facts about the Amazon, threats to the Amazon, and a visual list of "Zonia's Friends" (all the animals and plants she encountered), as well as selected sources and resources.

1.I read this book in Spanish and it would be a great book for beginning Spanish speakers as well as early elementary students.
2.This book goes through the stidry of a girl named Zonia who lives near the Amazon rainforest. She loves playing with the animals and making friends with them. However, on the way home one day she sees deforestation happening and she gets mad and upset and tells her mom about it. Then at the end of the book there is a message saying we need to same the forests.
3.This book is a good book and I would recommend this to be in the classroom. One of the only things I didn't really like about the book is the color scheme of the illustrations and how they seemed to be quite muted and darker colors. But other than that the book was great.… (mais)
