it was ok
bookshelves: latino, picture-books

a child narrator would not describe her parents' bodies so sensually. just try reading this out loud without sounding like a cheap romance novel. the Spanish words the (apparently) Norteamericana author peppers the story with sound forced. the illustrations were lovely, however.
