Nieve en la Jungla / Snow in the Jungle
What I loved: This is a unique and important picture book that can help to capture the feelings of going somewhere completely new, leaving friends behind, to a place where the food and even language can feel unfamiliar. For children who are experiencing something similar, it can helpful to read Snow's story and understand/express their feelings as well as see that Snow eventually feels better. The illustrations are really sweet, and they capture Snow's emotions so well throughout.
The book uses a large, clear font along with sparing text - just enough to understand the story. The brief text on each page make this a book that works for a wide range of ages, from preschoolers up. This particular edition is bilingual, with all the text in both Spanish and English, which adds something extra special to the story and is great for children who speak either or both languages.
Final verdict: A sweet story of the challenges around moving, NIEVE EN LA JUNGLA/SNOW IN THE JUNGLE is a great picture book pick for children who may be relocating somewhere completely different. Recommend for preschoolers and up in similar situations or who may have a classmate in this situation.
