I’d love to create a children’s book around this community of friendly aliens, especially this empowered girl alien! it’s a body positive community!
What started as a design project became my first opportunity to write a series of bilingual children’s books! All of the artwork selected for this series comes from the wonderful collections of the San Antonio Museum of Art. Thanks, SAMA, for escorting me into every locked nook and cranny of storage so I could locate just the right pieces to include!
These seven books have been awarded:
• Moonbeam Children's Book Award Gold Medal (best board book) • International Latino Book Awards (best educational children's bilingual book, 2nd place) • Foreword Magazine Best Children's Book Award (picture books, finalist) • 2013 International Latino Book Awards - Bronze • 2013 International Latino Book Award - Silver • School Library Journal Top 10 Latino-Themed Books of 2013 • International Latino Book Awards Finalist (waiting to hear for the titles released in 2018!)
