    1. Some challenging vocabulary words for new Spanish readers, and a lovely story of a Chinese family living in Guatemala. Really beautiful.


    2. A beautiful book about a girl growing up in Guatemala, whose parents are Chinese immigrants. The illustrations are reminiscent of Guatemalan textiles but include Chinese influences as well.
