JOURNEY TO MIAMI is an early reader book that recaps the story of the animated film. Just as in the film, the book begins with Vivo and Andres performing in Cuba. After Andres dies peacefully in his sleep, Vivo fulfills Andres's wish to deliver the love song he wrote to his lost love, Marta, in Miami. Accompanied by Andres's niece, Vivo travels to Florida, facing dangers and meeting new friends in the Everglades. His journey is long but noble, for his best friend and his love.

What I loved: This is a great Level 2 Reader for fans of the movie. The book recaps the plot smoothly, adding in dialogue as appropriate. The length is longer than typical picture books, as a Level 2, just below a short chapter book in length. The font is printed clear and large to make it easy for young readers. While it does have some tough words here and there (for example, "soothingly"), this does feel appropriate for the level which has varying difficulty. The storytelling is spot-on, with the right amount of dialogue in each scene to remember the fun of the film. The illustrations are colorful, bright, and capture the scenes and characters well.

Final verdict: JOURNEY TO MIAMI! is a great early reader for fans of VIVO who want to practice their Level 2 reading skills. A lengthier read with some challenging words, this book is sure to be a delight for fans of the film.
