Starring Carmen!

(4) K-3 Illustrated by Lorena Alvarez Gómez. Purple-haired "one-girl sensación" Carmen loves to perform for her family. She usually ignores her little brother--until she realizes how much Eduardo adores her. Although the conflict is tame, this is a lively romp about a budding diva told in direct, winking text sprinkled with Spanish. Reflecting Carmen's personality, the digital illustrations are a vivacious riot of bright colors and swirling lines.
