Book Fiesta!: Celebrate Children's Day/Book Day; Celebremos El dia de los ninos/El dia de los libros by Pat Mora
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Lopez also illustrated Book Fiesta! by Pat Mora, which won the Pura Belpre award. Book Fiesta is about the adventure of reading and how reading inspires the imagination. For the past 15 years, thanks to Pat Mora, there has been a celebration of children and reading called El Dia de los Ninos/El Dia de los Libros. Book Fiesta was written in honor of this celebration.
Here is another example of Lopez's Children's book illustrations that captures his fire and Spanish flair:The Cazuela That the Farm Maiden Stirred by Samantha R. Vamos
Rafael Lopez was the perfect choice for this year's summer reading theme illustrator! His artistic style is vibrantly colorful, warm, and engaging. With Hispanic flavor and international appeal, his work glows and emits emotion.
The "One World Many Stories" artwork is beautiful! If your local library is participating in the program you should stop by the children's department to see the posters and decorations all designed by Rafael Lopez!
