Juana and LucasJuana and Lucas by Juana Medina
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Juana is a typical little girl that most readers will identify with, even though she lives in Colombia. She has a family, a dog, a best friend, troubles with school -- typical kid stuff. She struggles to learn English so she can visit the United States. Once she finally begins to feel confident in her English, she feels inspired to learn more languages and see the world.

I recommend the series because it's good for children to see how people in other parts of the world may not be very different after all. The added Spanish words throughout serve as a nice introduction to Spanish for children who may become interested in learning more. The illustrations and page design provide a nice introduction to chapter books for young readers.

I received this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
