@kidlitexchange #partner Thanks to the @kidlitexchange network for the review copy of this book - all opinions are my own.
Have you ever read a book that makes you warm and fuzzy inside? If you haven't, then you need to read about Arturo because it is the sweetest book full of kindness and love. Arturo and the Bienvenido Feast is the story of a little boy and his grandmother making dinner for Arutro's aunt's husband-to-be. Arturo works side by side with his grandmother in the kitchen preparing a feast. Suddenly, grandmother gets a headache and needs to go rest. What happens when she falls asleep and loses track of time? What will happen to the food when the doorbell rings and grandmother is still asleep? Will it make a good impression on Michael? You have to read this incredible book to find out how this dinner turns out!!
To say I love this book is an understatement! This is one of those books that just makes your heart so full of love! The illustrations are just beautiful and I love having two different translations, English and Spanish, side by side. There are also some yummy looking recipes in the back.
