I have read most of it, but it was still easy for my 1st grader to be prepared and follow along. The subject matter was great too, as my child is dealing with similar themes that Stella had to deal with. It was very relatable to her. I would definitely recommend this book to emerging readers!
The story is about a young girl who has low self-confidence and divorced parents. She also does not speak English well. Too many problems in this book are present and so far not very uplifting. I read this aloud to my great grandson. She likes it, I don 't.

Our entire school read this with the intentions of meeting this local author. Due to Covid, we did not get to meet her in person, but we did a virtual meeting with our school.
   Relatable for Kids
I used this book in my classroom as a read aloud. We loved the storyline because it was relatable! It tells the story of a shy girl with language insecurities who faces a bully and the prospect of having to present an oral presentation. There are online resources I used to extend and make connections as part of the 2019 Global Road Aloud.

I am a teacher librarian and this book fits perfectly with the demographics of my elementary school. I love the way Stella gains confidence in her ability to express herself with the help of her family and her BFF. I also liked the Spanish terms interspersed throughout the text and the author's sketches, supplementing and enriching the narrative and helping the young or English-learning reader with comprehension.
